Promodo Hub & Office by Bude Architects offers a transformable platform for the exchange of ideas

18 Jun 2022 News

Situated in an actively developing IT district of Kharkiv, Promodo Hub & Office by Bude Architects is a transformable platform for conferences, lectures, art exhibitions, and the exchange of ideas.

Comprising 2000 m2 in floor area over three main blocks, the hub offers office space for 220 employees with 400 m2 dedicated to hub space and 150 m2 to an academy for teaching students. Open spaces alternate with meeting rooms and areas for recreation. The meeting rooms themselves vary from informal to official and accommodate different numbers of people.

The city fabric of Kharkiv itself forms the main visual concept of the project with its urban stories projected into the interior. At the entrance to the hub and office space, there is a map of the city.  Individual meeting rooms are each also associated with recognizable city locations, in particular those that are popular meeting spaces such as Stekliashka (a glass entrance to the Underground Station at the University). In line with this, Stekliashka is a glass meeting room complete with original subway seats and lamps, chess playing area, and an authentic subway sign.

In another example, the Dezhprom meeting room is dedicated to the famous monument of constructivism complete with a design studio, engineering lamps, drawing boards and a city model.

Throughout the design, there are numerous small details also related to the city including tiles from the Kharkiv Bergenheim factory of 1876, which includes an original inscription of the Bergenheim brand in the city.

More modern/current branding elements include a white and yellow Promodo meeting room, which reflects the corporate brand colours.
