1) Start with the light. That’s why we took this space. Start with the light.
2) Do not over-design. Take the character of the space and just work with it. I’m guilty of over designing myself sometimes - being too thoughtful, precious and considered. I wrestle with it!
3) Celebrate the character and history of a place. That’s why the floors are untreated and why things will stay the way they are. It's important to understand that and respect that.
Why this space works:
They celebrate the rough industrial interior and complement it with modern furnishings. The furnishings range from independent American brands, like the Artifox and Most Modern, to European brands Muuto and deVorm. Custom woodworking and finish work is visible in conference doors and the one long, custom communal table.
