The project VIL is an interior build-out in an existing warehouse for the Los Angeles headquarters of the content and production agency Conscious Minds. A main architectural feature is a continuous surface sheet forming an articulated ceiling and simultaneously folding around two conference spaces. The digital surface manipulation follows in part pragmatic stipulations but also creates a divided two-material sheet that appears to artificially tear at the seams to allow glimpses into the otherwise enclosed conference rooms.

CA Technologies has recently launched their new development center, spread over 2 floors in Herzliya, Israel.
CA’s guidelines for the design team were to create a young and dynamic environment; as a result the design team came up with an idea for a new kind of work space that incorporated all of the above as well as being inspirational and unique.

Located in what used to be a Plateau-Mont-Royal general store, la Shed preserves the area’s vernacular architecture while adopting a resolutely contemporary appearance that reflects the company’s image.
The workshop and adjacent meeting space are completely open and the glass façade allows passers-by to observe the architects at work. Halfway between an office and a boutique, the space redefines the traditional architect’s office. The original building’s structure, located at the center of the office, is highlighted by its neon color scheme. On one side of the office is a large white block that contains the meeting room, kitchen and stationery. The central block on the other side of the office is divided into a materials library that harkens back to the general store’s shelving units. These shelves allow light to filter through to the meeting room that is isolated by a frosted glass wall. The wood paneling, table trestles, lighting and choice of accessories combine to provide the workshop with a casual, collegial and well thought out atmosphere.

In this typical 17th Century flat located in the heart of the Marais, three working axes have structured the work :
– Within the 36 m2 space, there will be a bedroom, a dinner-area, a lounge, an office, a kitchen and a bathroom.
– There will be an illusion of a larger surface by visually lengthening the flat.
– The space will be transformed while keeping the character of the old…

On the industrial site directly neighboring the East Railway Station, the IVG Munich developed a concept for the future of the “new media” many of which were already housed in an existing building on the site. In order to fulfil the desperately needed extra space requirements for the already fully rented 100,000 square meters of building, Steidle Architects studied the zoning and building situation of this area neighboring the well-known “Kunstpark Ost” (artistic park east).

This extension and remodeling of a Grade II listed Georgian town house by Belsize Architects rejects a traditional brick extension in favour of a more contemporary design, thereby providing greater interest and allowing the extension to read clearly as a separate yet sympathetic addition.

The Transformable Workplace Pod is a concept proposal for a special place in which to work. The design of the painted wood structure is based on an eight-foot cube, but these dimensions can change, and the basic cube can be connected together with other cubes in multiple diverse configurations, to form much larger spaces. The prefabricated cubes can be delivered to a site with little preparation needed.
