EKP Offices

The interior architecture is minimalist but thoughtful, with attention to every little detail, every single tone, nuance and material in the space has been carefully selected to create a harmonious, precise and natural feel with haptic qualities. The 3D faces wall at the main entrance creates an animated experience while walking across it in the reception area, it reflects the diversity of cases handled by the office team. A monumental stair links the 2 floors, creating a center piece sculpture.A palette of wood and plaster in muted tones creates an informal, home-like environment that is more akin to a lounge than an office.

Green Hall 2, a cutting-edge business centre located on a bend of Neris River, is distinguished by its soft architectural forms.

WRD OFFICE

Upon entering the room the user is greeted by a range of texture and materials that make him explore the environment in a sensory way. The project commissioned by a law firm in São Paulo, Brazil, arose from the need for a space for interaction and exchange of knowledge. The living area should be the highlight of this expansion. We implanted this space in the center of the ensemble, and worked from it so that it was a point of light (glare) that radiates to the rest of the room.   To delimit the lounge, we developed a suspended wooden luminaire with tensioned screen, creating a plane of diffused light. An interesting and intentional counterpoint emerges when mixing a material of weight like typical Brazilian wood with a super c... More

Norton Legal

Norton Legal is new workplace for a modest but sophisticated contemporary law firm within an existing industrial building in Melbourne's west.   After our initial research phase (surveys, interviews and site analysis) we realised that with a compact warehouse of 76sqm we didn't have enough area to accommodate all the required spaces and program. This included traditional office areas such as a meeting room, entry/waiting and reception area, printing and archive spaces, bathroom and shower, kitchen, storage and a lunch area. In addition our client had recognized the opportunity for her workplace to facilitate better work life balance by including a place for kids to hang out after school. Sound control was also very important for work... More

BCF Avocats d‘affaires

On the 25th floor of an office building in downtown Montreal, a masterclass in design engineering, collaboration and retrofitting took place between Skyfold engineers and architects. THE DESIGN CHALLENGE  HUMÀ design + architecture was tasked with redesigning a multipurpose conference room for law firm BCF. The conference rooms were being used for client meeting spaces and employee training. In both cases, privacy and noise control were top concerns. In the original design concept, HUMÀ was considering traditional movable walls, but limited floor space meant that storage closets on the floor for horizontal panels were out of the question. Instead, HUMÀ, wanted to give their clients a flexible space solution t... More

C R Office

Through our client’s desire to reinvision an antiquated office building along Shoal Creek, we were able to create a contemporary yet neighborhood-appropriate law office. The design utilized the simplicity of the building’s mid-century form as the backdrop to a vibrant and dynamic design driven from the inside-out. The roof of the existing central courtyard was lifted up off of the building to create a light-filled entryway that highlights the owner’s artwork and allows the central core of the building to receive even natural light. The front corners of the building were wrapped in glass to create daylit conference rooms of differing sizes. Playing off of the new facade and program, steel planters of varying heights soften...

Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr (CDH)

When CDH, one of South Africa’s leading law firms approached us to design their client-facing area and training facility on the ground floor of their building in Sandton, we were excited to produce an environment that would be a fitting representation of this illustrious 166-year-old company.   The client lounge is characterised by rich, warm timber, and small touches of mid-century detailing seen in the choice of the statement pendant over the coffee bar. We also included a contemporary take on wall paneling as well as a modern touch in the illuminated glass wall detail. Welcoming and warm, this area promotes a variety of different activities and levels of privacy in one space. The dining room, set in a tapered corner of the a... More

Holla Advocaten Eindhoven

Holla Advocaten is an old acquaintance of us. In ’17 we’ve designed and realised the interior of their office in Den Bosch. This time we were asked to design their location in Eindhoven. This concerns a new office in Eindhoven where Holla Advocaten is going to settle. The interior that we’ve designed for their office in Den Bosch was our guideline. From our architects-café - a brainstorm-session between our customers and our architects -  the following keywords emerged: "modest, stylish and warm."   During the design process, we’ve paid a lot of attention to the routing in the Eindhoven office. This resulted in a logical layout whereby the liveliness takes place at the entrance and, as people move... More
