San Francisco-based gaming software program program developer Giant Pixel reached out to Studio I+A to design their first headquarters in a flip-of-the-century setting up. The setting up was as quickly as a printing press and now needed to be reformatted to cope with the small agency’s operations and its 20+ employees and visitors.
The designers needed to accommodate various work areas into the A,200-sq.-foot space they often’ve managed to do this with a mix of mid-century modernism and a barely futurist vibe, all lending itself to a inventive work environment.
A giant concrete reception desk cantilevers out from the wall making a daring and sculptural assertion, setting the tone for all of the office space.
At the office’s entrance, a blackened metallic cowl was put in to create a separation between the reception and prepared areas and the office space. The cowl is perforated with a laptop code pattern that seems like random pixels.
The prime flooring houses workstations, a conference room, private break cabanas, and a espresso counter inside the once more. There’s moreover an area with a suspended fireside and seating.
I love how they saved distinctive particulars identical to the picket ceilings and concrete partitions.
They constructed private cabanas and enclosed them with gray felt to help with sound separation.
In the basement, they created a lounge and a bar giving the employees an in-residence escape full with cocktails (hiya!) and a on-line recreation area. (Are they hiring?!)
