Focusing on the potential of the space, human factor and delicate work with context, RHIZOME handles the conception and realization of design and architectural projects of various scales from urban and landscape planning to public interiors and product design. The history of bureau is represented through evolving hospitality projects for ‘Tochka na Karte’ Сountry Hotels chain, various retail interiors for Respublika* bookstores, works with art institutions like Moscow Museum of Modern Art and Manifesta 10 as well as participation in multiple architectural competitions. The team of 12 members also develops critical position on the architectural theory and design through writing, researching and attending themed conferences.
