VeenendaalCave designed this office space in Atlanta Georgia. It’s the office of In Zone Brands, a specialist children’s beverage brand, and we love the simple combination of clean lines, neutral colours and bright accents!
The core of the building was painted a dark gray and the ceiling and floor planes were kept clean and straight forward to promote views to the exterior. The furniture selections were purposely white and light so that the user’s eye floated over the open office and forced attention to the exterior.
This office is one of the odder spaces featured on this blog. Designed by the Architects Kotaro Horiuchi, the office aims to be a productive work space covered entirely in plastic. The office is called Membrane in Stratum, and each area is zoned out by clear plastic sheets. The aim was to create a functional separation of spaces without the use of walls, which can take up a lot of space.
Work environments are adaptable on the fly in this type of space, and unlimited in composition by simple tables.

Citrix UK is an IT company that specialises in providing services to business. Their new office was designed by Area Sq and is based in Calfont Park, Buckinghamshire. The space also houses their client demonstration and staff training area.
Area Sq subsequently recommended a design solution which did not involve making any major alterations to the building in order to obtain planning consent within the deadlines set by the client. The refurbishment included the reception, boardroom, auditorium and break out area as well as an executive office and open plan area.
We especially like the reception, which seamlessly merges old and new by amalgamating wood panelling and antiquated windows with flat screen TVs and modern funky furniture.

Allens Linklaters appointed BVN Architecture to design and develop their office space in Melbourne. Linklaters is an international firm with offices around the globe, including Australia, Asia and Europe. The space was designed to incorporated the firm’s core values of ’clear thinking’ and ‘one firm’. Simple materials were used to give the space a feel of elegance and precision, with the subtle use of detail integrated the environment with honest materials.
A key aspect of the design is the incorporation of Allens Linklaters’ corporate art collection throughout the workplace, particularly on the client floor where timber floors, white walls and refined details create the ambience of an art gallery. The workplace will accommodate legal and corporate service staff in a mixture of open plan and offices. BVN undertook the functional brief, design and documentation for the project. The development of the brief included an extensive programme of user group meetings which explored both functional and aspirational aspects of the new workplace.
This is the office space of Glem, a company based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The office was designed by Mareines + Patalano Arquitetura and is housed within a concrete building comprised of several levels. The space has an industrial feel about it, with concrete used throughout. Yet at the same time warmth and excitement is infused through the use of wood and feature pieces such as red chairs.
Details such as the on-site handcrafted bamboo mesh, the translucent catwalk glass, stainless steel handrails that seem to float over the stairs for not being attached to it, and the generous light filtered mainly trough the semi-circle glazing, gives lightness and delicacy to the design.
