The results of the All-Russian competition in the field of green architecture and construction, organized by the “National Agency for sustainable development”, has been announced on September 5 at the festival in the ecological park “Yasno Pole” in the Tula region. However, at this moment the whole “Atrium” team was enjoying the works of Zaha Hadid at the State Hermitage Museum, so the award has found the winner just now! And it turned out that the “green” in every sense of the word office of “Yandex” HQ on the street by Lev Tolstoy won not just one, but two prizes: 1st place in the category “Interior” and the third – in the special nomination “Grand Prix”. From the 174 works the jury chose us! By the way, we are always enthusiastically watching how live our projects “after the date” – in particular, constantly communicating with the “Yandex” staff and sharing each other's success. Wondering how are green walls (bloom and smell!). And in preparation of the information for the competition we have, for example, found that the headquarters of the largest Russian IT-company practices separate waste collection and there is a special person responsible for the disposal of batteries. So our environmental ideas implemented in this project, continue to live and grow. Hooray!
