Long day at the office? Wouldn’t seem likely in these seven inspiring spaces!
The Red Bull Amsterdam headquarters (by Sid Lee Architecture) encourage a discourse involving work, play and rebel culture. In Copenhagen, the KPMG Danish Headquarters (by 3XN) balance discretion with a welcoming environment in a cloverleaf design.
Heading to Russia, the Microcity Sales Office (by Mossine Partners) resembles part spaceship, part inflatable igloo. The bubbling structure houses the temporary sales offices of a real estate company set to develp the land site.
Meanwhile, two projects in the Netherlands have ticked our (architectural) fancy. Nieuwegein City Hall (by 3XN) is architecturally seeking to create a stronger, more cohesive community. The Hague Municipal Office (by Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau) is an unmistakable landmark for the city, which combines an office and meeting centre with library and apartments.
Also in Amsterdam, the Tribal DDB offices (by i29) use wool felt to cover a space’s existing scars while adding sound insulation.
Finally, in designing the No Picnic Office (by Elding Oscarson), a major hurdle was to be overcome: the space was split in two by a 1980s steel mezzanine platform on columns.
