Bureau, Riems

Riems, third floor apartment conversion for the satellite office of a wind farming company. I wanted to communicate an image of a confident company, well integrated in a neighbourhood where champagne runs like water. My intention was to create an environment that employees would feel proud of, and that it naturally lead to real job dedication. By working with texture we could create haptic connections; These connections would foster body memories and establish personal emotive associations to the environment. Setting out definitive textures helps define space on non visual terms and leads to a sense authenticity.

The open space has a table in charred, oiled Ash. Raw brass edge pulls from Simonswerk on matte oak storage units. A potted tree, oversize prints & lamps by Muuto. The conference room receives a table in marble, retro wooden chairs and hedgehog style console. Oversize prints link the conference room with the open space, lamp by Muuto. Rear office rooms, facing the courtyard with minimal northern light, receive white wood apparatus for a softer, light mood.
