LOS ANGELES – Architecture studio FreelandBuck introduces a playful design of ‘tumbled cubicles’ to banish workplace monotony in the new headquarters for Hungry Man Productions. Installed within a former warehouse, the design features modern forms and materials in a haphazard layout that mimics the light-hearted brand identity.
The apparently random arrangement of white boxes are actually strategically placed to enhance interaction between certain employees while leaving common areas open. The cubes are clad with MDF panels milled in a pattern similar to the corrugated metal of the bare ceiling, drawing on the industrial character of the space to add graphic details to the grey and white interior.
The textured pattern offers a pleasant contrast to the smooth concrete floors and lends to the distinction between the cubes and their sparse environment. Constituting entirely independent structures, the cubes transform the space into a dynamic campus with a non-linear circulation.
