Workplace Showcase for 4th April 2013:

Another entry all the way from August 2012, this time from Desire to Inspire. The images here are from one of two semi detached houses by David Boyle Architect

For me, these are so appealing because they feel lived in - something summed up nicely by commenter ‘Ash’ over at Desire to Inspire

"Love seeing personalized homes which don’t look as if they have come out of the pages of Vogue Living."

Sophisticated minimalism needn’t restrict itself to the cold colours of glass, concrete and whitewash, surely? This doesn’t, and for me the result is a warm, friendly, creative workplace. 

The Workplace Showcase is a daily feature indulging in some of the very best work setups I’ve come across. Many are unattainable to all but the most resourceful reader, but for a these I turn a blind eye. Take the time to take inspiration and enjoyment from them without anything else getting in the way.

Workplace Showcase for 20th March 2013:

Originally posted on Freshome all the way back in August 2012, perhaps I’m a little late to the party. It’s so good though that I have little doubt you’ll enjoy a second viewing. 

You’re looking at a small snapshot of the Kirchplatz Office and Residence, born of a partnership between Huesler Architekten and Oppenheim Architecture + Design, both of whom now use it as an office space.

Originally a centuries old farmhouse, this extensive renovation puts the ample space to good use. Full of natural light and modern, minimalist styling it now provides the perfect setting for the two firms to work comfortably and without distraction.

There is a great deal more to this building than I’ve been able to describe in this short entry. The great people over at Dezeen, ArchDaily and Freshome each have a full overview and many more images for your viewing pleasure.
