Modern and Elegant Offices Designed by the Firm TheDesignGroup

By • Sep 26, 2018

These modern and elegant offices belong to the DHL company, known worldwide as one of the leading international transport companies that offers international courier, parcel, and express mail services. For its design, the company hired the interior design firm TheDesignGroup, who were responsible for designing, building, and carrying out the project of its new offices located in Warsaw, Poland.

Elegant relaxation area

For the team in charge, the interior of an office is a combination of a multitude of styles that create an elegant space for the employees, while simultaneously being a less formal space. Elegance and modernity prevail in the reception area, the first point of contact with any potential client. The work areas have a uniform gray and white style with visible yellow elements. The social interiors, recreational areas that include games like table football, and the resting areas of the employees are designed in a slightly more varied climate.

Offices Where the Industrial Style Gives a Touch of Originality

By • Sep 25, 2018

These modern offices with a distinct and charming industrial style have been designed by the firm Squire & Partners in collaboration with the design firm Oktra in 2018. They have an area of 50,300 square feet and are located in Southwark, in London, England.

Entrance with aged brick walls

The offices belong to Ministry and are part of a recently opened coworking space and an exclusive club. In them, the professionals and creatives of the industry could gather and collaborate; this had been one of the requirements for these spaces. To do this, the firm worked directly with the designers, and created spaces for entertainment and coworking for the next generation of creative rebels.

Modern waiting area

It was important to expose the original fabric of the building to comply with the design specifications, so it was sought to maintain existing materials as much as possible. The plaster and the masonry were preserved in many places with several bare walls to reveal the history and the rawness of the building. The result: original spaces full of charm.

The sound booths, the space for events, the cinema, and the external and internal bars with a fully equipped kitchen will support the complex as an entertainment space, promoting functions and events within the music industry.

Industrial Facility Designed to Control a Water Reservoir

By • Jul 26, 2018

This construction, designed and carried out by the architect Pedro Geraldes in 2018, is part of a concept of an industrial installation for global energy company EDP. It is meant to act as a base for the observation and control of a dam in case of emergency.

View of the road that leads to the place

It is located in Ermida, central region of Portugal, in an area bound by a beautiful watercourse and surrounded by a large forest. This contemporary industrial building aims to reinterpret traditional buildings, honoring the name of the location and respecting the materiality of the architectural history of the company.

The construction needed to remain in a high location, protected from floods and allowing a perfect view from the inside to the dam. This made interventions in the landscape necessary, which resulted in a high-level platform and vehicle access leading to the entrance of the building.

View of the construction on top

The design of an industrial building in a forest area, with some traditional buildings with sloping roofs, made it possible to envision how a contemporary industrial building could fit into this landscape.

The entrance is totally opaque in aluminum, with the exception of two glass doors, while the rear facade is entirely glass, except for the area where ventilation was required.

Offices in Vietnam with a Completely Renewed and Innovative Air

By • Jul 3, 2018

The architects Dao Thanh Hai and Nguyen Hanh Nguyen, working for architectural firm Nhat Viet JSC, together with the interior designers Thien Ngan and Dieu An, have recently designed this space of 160 square meters. It is located in Tran Hung Dao Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Specifically, it is next to Bui Vien pedestrian street, a busy place and known as a tourist and cultural area of Saigon.

View of the main entrance

Although it is an old building, it is not so old as to need to be conserved; as such, it has not gone under renovation. This also implies, of course, that it is not in a ruined state and does not need to be demolished or reconstructed. Although the land is located in the best location of the District, the value of the real estate is almost nil. The people here do not sell, do not rent, and do not do any kind of business.

The design team has devised a concept of “reuse” higher than usual, which aims to create inspiration for both the user and the community. They will make the office space more pleasant than the common office on the street and the staff and clients will experience the ancient history of the French architectural scene.

Within the office, the solutions for planting trees in the vertical and horizontal lines also connect the trees from the roof to the office and connect to the yard of the apartment building.

Spectacular Remodeling Project of a Space that Used to Be a Barn

By • Apr 19, 2018

This project was carried out by NONG STUDIO architectural studio and led by Chasing Wang, Neal Zhu, Luca Lannote (Italy) and Kunyang Wang in 2017. It has an area of 180 square meters and is located in Suzhou South Rd., Huangpu District, Shanghai, China.

Modern and elegant entrance area

If we follow the history of Shanghai, an important point for its inhabitants is the Suzhou River. Industrial buildings along the river have witnessed the prosperity and decline of concessions, as well as the emergence of national industries. This space used to be the private granary of Yuesheng Du before ultimately becoming the warehouse of the Commercial Bank of China.

Sober and elegant space
Elegant decorated in marble and gold

Its façade and its interior space have been restored in such a way that it respected its history, integrating itself with the modern elements. This allowed it to demonstrate its intimate connection with the past.
In terms of functional design, the space was organized according to the level of privacy or efficiency, which is common in the design of traditional offices. And it was organized according to the possibility of interaction.
When design can tell the life and experience of a person, it is already a search for the emotional essence.

Offices Recently Remodeled to Create Workspaces Full of Natural Light

By • Mar 20, 2018

These luminous modern offices were originally work areas where there was no natural light, and which were populated by very dark rooms. As such, one of the main motivations for the project was to transform it into open rooms where light fills each of its spaces.

Entrance door to offices

The architectural studio SABRAB lead the project, and was responsible, in 2017, for carrying out the radical change suffered by this office area, located in Lisbon, Portugal. In an area of 108 square meters, the architectural firm intended to create several areas that could meet the needs of the company: two offices, a meeting room, and an open space with a common work area and a technical and printing room.

Being a company based on creativity and the development of new ideas, on the exchange of knowledge between its employees, and on the search for new solutions, the firm created a play area that could provide a relaxed atmosphere. In this room are a pool table and a ping pong table, which also allows the possibility of becoming a larger worktable.

In order to break the square and regular shape of the office plan, uneven geometric shapes were created that now define the meeting room and the two work rooms.

By • Mar 15, 2018

These wonderful offices offer their employees warm environments in which to work and give free rein to the imagination. They have been designed by the General Design firm in the hands of its main architect, Shin Ohori, in the city of JINGUMAE in Tokyo.

Open offices with relaxation areas for sharing

The space, owned by every day is the day, a creative agency that was founded in 2017, has wide open spaces in which the green of the plants, as well as the wood that has been used in its furniture and in some elements of its construction, is a common detail in each of its spaces.

Office with plants that give freshness and greenery

It has 200 square meters and its distribution allows the personnel of the company to congregate and participate in various tasks, while allowing natural communication. The design team eliminated the finishes of the ceiling and floor present in the space, in order to expose the raw concrete structure of the 50-year-old building.

Architectural Studio Designed for a Couple of Architects

By • Feb 28, 2018

This project is a 46 square meter home studio designed for a couple of architects who not only share their passion for architecture, but also both enjoy music and painting together. It is located in Kerala, India, and was designed by the architects Shinoop & Revathy of Attic Lab.

The interior needed to be flexible and serve as a multifunctional space in which to practice music and enjoy debate and discussion. It also needed to be compact and modern in its material and construction. The entire space is divided into two levels, ground floor and attic, which act as work and leisure space, respectively.

Main facade surrounded by green and thick vegetation

The characteristic regional expression of Kerala architecture is the result of geographical, climatic, and historical factors. The most distinctive visual form of Kerala architecture is the long, steep sloping roof built to protect the walls of the house.

Structurally, the roof frame was supported on the pillars in the walls erected in a raised base of the floor for protection against moisture and insects in the tropical climate.

The selection of materials and construction techniques was influenced by structural load, cost, installation time, and maintenance over time and sustainability.

Offices with a Marked Industrial Touch

By • 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.

Rest area with cork edges

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.

Office area with concrete walls and industrial decoration

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.

Offices Provide Employees with a Lively Working Environment

By • Feb 12, 2018

This Corporate Office for Team Thai was designed by Tony Joseph, George Seemon, Anupama, Priya Pillai, and Ankita of STAPATI in 2015. The offices are located in Kozhikode, Kerala, in India, and cover a total ground area of nearly 30,000 square feet. The functional areas of the building rise high above the ground, leaving the ground floor free as a multifunctional space. This allows the landscape to move inwards and outwards, making the internal environment cozy and full of energy.

The front facade of the building is designed with an interesting trellis pattern to defend against the harsh sun, while at the same time allowing great ventilation in the internal spaces.

Among the materials and elements used in this construction, we will find polished concrete floors, concrete partitions, and an exposed concrete roof, which contrasts with the elegance of the glass and the surrounding vegetation. This entire ensemble creates a working environment in the middle of nature.

The triple-height spaces are pivotal to the air-flow within the space.

The offices are more protected from direct sunlight by a screen wall on the front and side. The terrace becomes a garden and lounge that adds another layer against the warm tropical climate and helps keep the interiors cool.

Impressive Structure Designed to House Students of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan

By • Jan 30, 2018

The Alfred Taubman Wing is a 36,000 square foot expansion built for the College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. It was designed by the American architectural firm Preston Scott Cohen, which is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The project was completed in 2017 and is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

Aerial view of the impressive construction

The architectural firm was presented with a very clear challenge, that of balancing the creation of a vast expansion that would extend from the existing architecture as well as act like a center of circulation for all students and faculty.

Modern structure surrounded by nature

The exterior structure is done in an earthy gray color and a modern style, with a roof characterized by jagged lines. The lower level has a length of clear glass walls, so that light flows in and the lines between indoor and outdoor are blurred.

Modern Construction Houses an Office Complex in Yucatan, Mexico

By • Jan 24, 2018

The city of Merida, the vibrant capital of the Mexican State of Yucatan, is the location of this simple and modern construction, which covers an area of 270 square meters. It was designed by the architect Roberto Ramírez Pizarro of the architectural firm R79 in the year 2016.

Side view of the garden

“When nature prevails over construction,” was the premise for the design, and the marked line that led the firm to make this office complex in the north of the city. It covers an area 10 meters wide by 29 meters deep, just one block from one of the main and busiest avenues in the city.

Garden with vegetation

The plan consisted of superimposing the two bodies that make up the construction in such a way that they “trapped” the trees, and at the same time created a small alley towards the outside.
The design is dominated by light shades of white and beige, with some accents in black and wood as well.

Black glass walls connect with the garden

A first volume in black glass, which gives an air of elegance to the construction, receives us on the left side, its polished surface reflecting the preexisting vegetation as well as the new area that has been planted. The transparencies invite us to the interior and unite the interior with the exterior in a natural way and without interruptions. The complex houses two companies, one for Design and Advertising and another for Architecture.
