Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Simple Headquarters

Our new office is absolutely stunning. I have to stop and catch my breath nearly every corner I turn. I still cannot believe we get to work here.

Client Notes
Design a 'home' for Simple, with spaces that nourish connection and creativity, and support a variety of working styles—quiet rooms, war rooms, secure offices, and places for staff to gather.

Designer Notes
The building's wood structure is emphasized through a minimal material palette, with a selection of furniture, lighting, and rugs adding to its sense of craft. Drawn from residential living rooms, communal spaces on each floor create hearths for gathering. Window bench seats provide 360-degree unobstructed views.
