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.
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.

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!
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.

NerdWallet.com is a personal finance and credit card comparison website launched in March 2010. The American tech company is unsurprisingly based on the west-coast of the USA, namely San Francisco.

This executive office was designed by Fitzsimmons Architects, who are based in Oklahoma city USA. The large square metal ducts running the full length of the space were kept in place and incorporated into the design due to the low budget allocated for this office redesign. In fact, to keep the costs down the architects kept much of the existing fabrics and utilised them for the creation of design elements.
because the space is long, narrow and low, the design focused on the creation of a sense of motion, and exaggeration of existing proportions.
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.
