After over forty-five years of service in the broadcast and recording of thousands of concerts, the Symphony Hall’s Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft Control Room had earned a major upgrade.

The site of NDSM Nieuwdok site is a former ship dock area at the waterfront of Amsterdam Noord in the Netherlands. The area is currently largely derelict and used by early adapters, like Greenpeace, Red Bull and MTV. The remaining monumental industrial buildings allocate small creative businesses and workshops, while new bars and hip festivals indicate the potential attraction of the area. They are signs of what is about to happen, as in the coming years the area will be transformed into a diverse urban area, with housing, office space, hotels and the like, all with a staggering density. Surrounded by the IJ River and some remaining docks, the water has a strong impact on the site and provides beautiful views.

In 2012, O-office transformed the top floor of a 1960s’ silo building in the oldest beer factory of Guangzhou, the central city of southern China. The 38-metre-high silo building locates on the south bank of one branch of the Pearl River, confronting the generic housing high rises and looking south to the city’s old downtown. The top floor used to be the inlet level for the wheat berry to be fill in the 12 silo’s below, thus full of square holes on it. A bridge building has been connecting the building part on top of the silo’s, and the vertical transportation tower at the east end.

‘House of Rolf’ is an ambitious transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a spectacular home and workspace. What is truly unique about this project is that all the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house. The care and meticulous way in which these materials were reapplied can be witnessed in the end result. ‘House of Rolf’ is proof that waste can be turned into something beautiful.

Highline Stages, previously known as Ceco Studios, is a photo / film studio and events space in the Meatpacking district of New York City.
With 14,500 square feet and entrances on West 14th and West 15th Streets, the space previously housed large trucks and associated equipment related to film and production. The owner decided to rebrand the space as one that could be leased out for large events and filming. The unusually tall ceiling height and easy truck access from the street are a primary feature. EOA stripped the interior of all extraneous materials to expose its original character, providing a clean canvas for any variety of events and photo-shoots while still reflecting the inherent industrial fabric of the building. When the large steel doors that divide the space are open, a view through the entire block is revealed. The entries on both streets are designed to accommodate trucks while at the same time providing a layer of privacy and control to for private events. A new cafe bar is a place for cast and crews to relax and features reclaimed wood and blackened steel. Industrial lighting fixtures used on film sets have been re-purposed and integrated in a variety of ways throughout the space. Upstairs EOA created offices and work areas for the managers of Highline Stages with a continuation of the industrial aesthetic below. EOA also carved out smaller studio spaces to provide the client with additional opportunities to expand their offerings. The entire project is designed to provide the maximum flexibility to the clients of Highline Stages while also providing the perfect space for a variety of creative events to take place.
EOA worked with the New York City Landmarks Commission as well as the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation on the renovation which included incorporating a glass garage door at the street level, Image Courtesy © EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect
