TVGla is a creative digital advertising and media company, this is their Los Angeles office which was redesigned and redeveloped earlier this year. The office does away with boring cubicles and mundane office furniture, instead the design focuses on creating a modern, bright and energetic office space. Red accents are used throughout, and this colour was probably used as it reflects the corporate logo.
Created to feel like a modern industrial loft, this office boasts exposed ductwork, glass walls and one of the best staff kitchens I’ve ever seen. There are plenty of inspiring elements, which include a wonderful back yard and seating lounge. The bright pops of red everywhere punctuate the modern sleekness of the space.
Infor is a privately held U.S. software company that specialises in enterprise software, ranging from financial systems and resource planning to supply chain and customer relationships. They recently moved their HQ from Georgia to New York City, and they did so with the help of VOA, a globally known architectural firm. The office is 48,000 sqft and emphasises collaborative working paradigms as much as practically possible.
The new collaborative layout brings a social essence to the floor, a core component of both Infor’s product capabilities and the way team members develop ideas.
Technology has developed to such a degree over the years that working from home has become a viable office solution for many professionals. This office is the space of Prince Media Co, a boutique billboard company owned and operated out of a SoHo loft! The home office features large windows, which provide ample amounts of natural light and natural inspiration! The classic furniture mixes beautifully with the art and industrial pieces littered throughout the office. At at the end of the day, a partition slides across the space to close off the living and working areas.
The space has a great aged and architectural feel– with a large brick wall, vintage ceiling tiles and gorgeous hardwood flooring.
Orange is a mobile network operator and internet service provider in the United Kingdom, which launched in 1993. It was purchased by France Télécom in 2000, which then adopted the Orange brand for all its other mobile communications activities. The company recently opened up a customer service center in Oviedo Spain, which is now one of the most modern call centers in Spain.
Although the office is not ‘mind blowing’ compared to some of the other office spaces we have covered on this blog, it is nonetheless an interesting indication of what a modern call centre looks like.
Through the reform of the interior patio a lobby is opened and gets a rest and relaxation area for workers of over 200m2 and 11m in height. The zenithal lighting in this space is transmitted to the interior by continuous glass screens that make all work spaces have natural light. Using sound-absorbing carpets and ceilings and the colour balance between them, create a pleasant, quiet and functional space perfect to get the best customer service that Orange wants to offer.
The Fine Design Group is located in Portland USA, and their offices were recently redesigned with the creative input of Boora Architects. The designers aimed to create an open working environment, replicating in many ways the large open spaces of a loft. Being a creative agency, Fine Design wanted to create a space which encouraged collaboration and stimulated creativity and energy. One cool area is the “barn”, a 3-pronged room that floats at the west end of the space and houses two offices and the agency’s conference room, which is wrapped in a writable and magnetic surface prefect for brainstorming!
BIZZBY is a London based smartphone app developer, who recently moved their office to London‘s up-and-coming Silicon Roundabout. Based in what was subsequently a Victorian curtain pole factory, the company created a wonderfully quirky office in the heart of Shoreditch.The office features a funky and creative mural of the world created by Lucaso, one of London’s most prominent graffiti artists. We especially like the stark contrast between the modern floors and furniture and the seemingly more industrial walls and ceiling.
This is the flagship Washington DC office of the Octagon Agency, a global sports, entertainment and lifestyle marketing agency. They specialise in developing innovative marketing strategies and act for clients such as Michael Phelps, Felix Hernandez, Piers Morgan, and The Grammy Awards.
Designed by TPG Architecture, the aim behind the design was to create a timeless modern office, that was also dynamic and exciting.
We wanted our work environment to be very practical and to naturally incorporate our brand values – experience and modernity, passion for what we do, dedication to our clients, and collaboration across our team. We also wanted our space to reflect that we are in the image business. TPG understood all this, and their inclusion of strong branding elements and large graphics added significantly to the success of the design.
Büro is a dynamic young company based in South Beach Miami. Founded in 2009, the space was inspired by the growing coworking trends in Europe and other major US cities – the aim was to provide entrepreneurs and independent professionals with a better place to work.
The interior is fresh and flexible, designed to create an alternative urban workspace that’s stylish and affordable in the heart of Miami. The coworking space makes great use of retro furniture and modern feature pieces, we especially love the braille-like walls!
myThings are a company specialising in personalised display advertising, and their customers include the likes of Microsoft, Guess and Thomas Cook. Designed by Tali Rozenshtain and Rakefet Goldfarb, this space is their new office in Tel Aviv Israel, and it’s where the majority of their Research and Development takes place. Israel is proving to be a hotbed of technology companies, especially startups and so it’s no surprise that a company such as myThings would base their R&D branch there. The office mixes bright funky and modern colours with hints of retro and more classic design, combining to create one very well formed office space.
The design of the office space is a mix between “feel good” and easygoing, yet professional. With a lot of communal space, the myThings office sparks creativity through interaction between the employees in spaces with a lot of light. The office is a tightly edited combination of creativity, modernity and coolness.
