Our office sits within the office part of an old print shop, located on a courtyard in Vasastan. The space is long and narrow with the long side towards the façade. The space has eight identical big windows, six on the long side facing north and two on the short side facing east, giving the space ample light but no direct sun.
The space is 50 sqm and used to be divided into three small office spaces, a storage space, a kitchen, a small hallway, and a bathroom. Circulation was located in the back and dark because of it.
We’ve reorganized the plan making it more open and facing the light. A small volume in the back houses a kitchenette, a toilet and a cloakroom. Towards the façade is a big, elongated workspace and a square meeting room.
Along the façade in the workspace there’s a seven-meter oak veneer table. Storage units are built from offcuts from the table. Galvanized bookshelves cover three of the walls. We’ve laid bare the concrete ceiling and covered the floors in a silvery Bolon carpet.
The furniture is a mix of affordable industry products, secondhand bargains and homemade pieces.
