I’d Kill for this Office

Industrial/product design consultants No Picnic have outdone themselves with their new office/studio in downtown Stockholm. Enjoying the highest level of historical protection, the 19th century buildings required that architect Elding Oscarson be super meticulous about conservation, even down to each new screw hole. The result is a 21st century office with bright and creative interior design that also displays the structural materials of the building while owning its unique imperfections.The studio features a striking customer area that is distinctly separate from the creative spaces to help maintain secrecy. The workshop areas are open and full of natural light. The clever use of mirrors helps expand areas that would otherwise lack square footage and provides a symmetrical solution to the abnormally placed mezzanine.
