Exness is a dynamic and fast-growing fintech company that has become one of the leading forex brokers internationally. With their ongoing office expansion needs, we were engaged to design a multilevel workspace for the team of their Cyprus-based office in the Ellinon Building.
As the programming was tight, the creative process took place at unusual speed, with a highly-experienced core team at C+Architects working hard to design a new interior that signalled a complete change of culture, moving from a fairly rigid traditional office set-up to agile and flexible working with fewer desk spaces, as well as from from a white interior towards a bold and colourful hospitality sensibility, featuring new tones, textures and materials.
The 1000+ sqm office in 5 level has been transformed into 5 deferent atmospheres:

This statement is the perfect example to describe the theme that was chosen for the Ground floor. A BOLD statement is describing the whole ideology of the design. By incorporating the believes of EXNESS : Professional, human, open and honest we were able to design a welcoming space that in the same time is able to accommodate all the working needs of the employees and provide them with the innovative and playful spaces to increase their productivity and results. Employees can work in the space where they feel more like it, either on the private, comfortable desks, individual offices or the relaxing and modern multipurpose space of Exness offices Ground floor

In our times technology is our main weapon to overcome challenges that are unprecedented. This idea helped us design the second floor with technology as its theme. Through technology we can move forward and even further into regions that were unreachable before. By understanding that most of EXNESS employees are young we wanted to provide them with the space were they will express their mentality. E-sports and gaming today is the next big thing, so what’s best than a space were the principles of gaming and technology is introduced into the working space.
