Krownlab Headquarters

Tucked into the industrial disctrict of Northwest Portland, OR, the Krownlab building exemplifies creative repurposing of a 1930's warehouse.  The board formed concrete structure was originally used for producing braided steel cable for the shipping industry.  Beams and joists were sand-blasted to reveal old growth Douglas Fir, balancing the predominance of concrete and glass.  An open office floor plan was achieved by using fixed and sliding glass panels and half-wall partitions.  Krownlab sliding door hardware was used for entryway, conference room, and private meeting rooms. A white paper is available on the Krownlab website (, detailing the creative use of office space. Caption Caption Cap... More

De Vorm Office & Showroom

De Vorm's new headquarters celebrates the brand values in an ultimately functional and inviting destination for both employees and visitors. Workplace and showroom under one roofThe newly renovated location combines a showroom and an office in one building, emphasizing how De Vorm collection can blend into practically any context.

On another side, it's where architects and designers come for inspiration, and are able to explore the design possibilities of products to the fullest. Given that De Vorm offers furniture for both contexts, the design team decided to blur the lines between their workplace and showroom. As a result, many workplace areas received a welcoming... More

Centre House in Belfast Ireland

Centre House is an office complex in Belfast. For the coverings of the building’s entrance hall, the Ply Design architecture firm opted for Marazzi Mystone Ceppo di Gré, an elegant, refined stone-effect stoneware that reproduces the beauty of Ceppo di Gré, the grey-blue sedimentary rock found in Italy’s Lombardy region. Two shades were chosen for the lobby: Greige and Anthracite, both in the 75x75 cm size. The architects used the two different colours to create a distinction between the reception and entrance areas, an ideal strategy for visually separating two areas intended for different functions.

Alfa Digital Office

The office for the Digital division of Alfa-Bank reflects the spirit of the bank’s innovation through the aesthetics of the Martian surface, unusual for office spaces, in the atmosphere of retro-futurism, close to the young and creative employees of Alfa Digital. Elon Musk, at the time of developing the concept of the office, was testing a new prototype of a spacecraft for a flight to Mars. This is how the metaphor appeared, which formed the basis of the concept: while humanity is just preparing to conquer the red planet, Alfa-Bank should already be on its way to it. In the office, the idea can be found on the walls, in the windows, the names of the meeting rooms and, of course, in color. Red is the main accent. Most of the floor is... More

Vanke Shenzhen

‘What does a typical day here look like?’ At the end of a job interview, this is one question candidates often ask to get a feel of the workplace. At one time, the interviewer may have launched into details about the work timings, lunch hours and coffee breaks. Now however, in most modern organisations, the interviewer is unlikely to be able to give a singular, straight answer.   This is especially true in a company like Vanke. As an urban and rural development provider and a living space management company, the firm has too many diverse business interests for the work roles to fit into traditional definitions. With their operations expanding and diversifying even further, Vanke’s leadership team wanted to shift to... More

If you want to go far, go together.” So the popular saying goes.   But for the investment management firm, Arisaig Partners, this saying is not just an empty philosophy — it forms the very DNA of their corporate brand.
