CS-A Office

In the Conway Building built in 1914 on the Chapel Street Strip, Cera Stribley Architects set up shop in one of the studios in the old department store. As custodians of this grand studio space, the team has embraced the buildings character, with its lofty ceilings, elaborate cornices and decorative flooring.Respecting the buildings existing structure, the team has sensitively designed the fit out as freestanding furniture built to install as joinery and if ever removed will not interfere with the existing building shell, including the open plan kitchen which hosts daily team lunches as well as ‘round table’ discussions and presentations. The parquetry floor and the decorative ceilings have been not just embraced but highlighted with the op... More

VALUAR

Valuar has become a strategic partner of many of Argentina´s most renowned companies in the recruitment of executives for their top management and key position. The team desired a motivating and elegant environment with open space, private rooms and meeting rooms, so the designers responded with a simple concept which plays with boundaries.There is a multitude of interactions in everyday life; between people and things, things and spaces, inside and outside. Blurring, erasing, or slightly shifting the lines between these boundaries can challenge and loosen our preconceptions, giving rise to new spaces.If one takes a closer look at the gaps between two differing materials, metal frames and plants, it becomes apparent that there are no clear-...

The greenest office

Biophilic trend is effectively changing offices to full-natural work environments. In Gdynia, we created an architectural concept based on greenery in the headquarters of fast-growing fintech company. A real workspace, which is probably the greenest office in the world.   The uniqueness of the natural environment lies in its freedom and harmony, which then influence our mental comfort. Could the environment in which we work be like this?   Imagine a workplace that supports productivity, stimulates creativity and takes care of our well-being. Places with plenty of vegetation and natural elements have a positive effect on creativity, work efficiency, motivation and stress reduction. We asked ourselves the question: “How co... More

Home-like office for Allegro

Home is a place where we return to. It gives us positive feelings, making us want to spend our time there. It is a place where we perform our daily duties, such as cooking, but above all else, it's where we relax. We share it with our loved ones, and is a warm place that we invite our friends and acquaintances to.On the other hand, an office connotes with a cold, uninviting space. It's a labyrinth of long corridors with no natural lighting, bland offices with unpleasant fluorescent light and noise, and unfamiliar co-workers hidden behind closed doors. Is this the kind of place where we enjoy working? Is this the kind of place we want to return to?What if the office could look and feel more like home? What if we use different finish material... More
