Brooklyn Desks in New York City by STUDIOSC

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: STUDIOSC

Within an empty 10,000 Sq. Foot Ground floor space, STUDIOSC was commissioned to envision a creative co-working office in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The concept was to create a refined working environment using materials that would normally be considered trash. The old exterior factory windows that were replaced,were re-purposed to create dividing walls and become interior light sources in the main open desk & conference room area.  Working with Roguebuilt, we were able to amass off-cuts of OSB boards that would typically be thrown out or recycled,  cut and dyed them on site and created most of the of the delineating elements within the space; entry ceiling, kitchen dividing beam, back wall mosaic wall, kitchen wall accents, and reception desk.
