Offices with a Marked Industrial Touch
By Magaly • Feb 20, 2018
Setter Architects, a Tel Aviv based architectural firm, have designed these offices for Palo Alto Networks, a company involved in developing cyber defense solutions, in 2016. The site is located in Tel Aviv, Israel, on the 24th floor of a multi-storey office tower complex, and covers a total ground area of 3,000 square feet.
It is surrounded by an eclectic mixture of buildings in the downtown of the Israeli capital, with historical structures, such as painting workshops, artists’ studios, and restaurants, mingling alongside more modern buildings housing high tech companies.
The interior is a decorative expression of this culturally eclectic environment, as it mixes textures and patterns that are more traditional and places them beside more modern materials, creating a style that is unique and refreshing. In order to do this, Setter Architects repurposed much of what was already on site. For example, steel window profiles and garage doors became open space partitions, in order to sub-divide the internal space that felt more natural and facilitated circulation without sacrificing privacy. Other examples of the same concept include exposed brick blocks which were used as an interior wall in a conference room, and paint buckets from painting workshops that were used as distinct and curious wall decorations.
