The Dominion Office Building, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, is composed of a series of stacked, offset plates at each level. It is located in the southeast of the city near Dubrovka Station and is one of the first new IT/creative buildings in the primarily industrial and residential area.

The striking atrium at the heart of the building features a monotone color scheme, displaced balconies, and an interconnected series of staircases. The floor plates protrude into the open space, reflecting the building's exterior.

The atrium and its staircases

In between the atrium and the offices are the service cores, which house lifts, fire-escapes, and washrooms. The cores offer the offices some privacy while still allowing the natural light brought in by the atrium to penetrate them.

Aside from offices, the building also contains multiple conference, restaurant, and relaxation spaces. These facilities combine with the openness of the atrium encourage the multi-faceted companies within the building to interact, which is seen as important in the IT/creative industry for progress and development.
