Voila! I’m happy to share our final proposal for the tech office retreat. In this scheme, we combined the best ideas of our previous efforts. The warm wood panels create a sense of enclosure within the room, while still allowing circulation between the two stairwells. The panels open up at the center to expose a large window with a view to the trees outside. Sculptural sofas with high backs face the view, and are paired with organically shaped, powered tables. A single chair floats in the middle of the space, acting as a micro waiting area or an additional seat if needed. The alcoves at the back can be used as a private area for one, or for small group meetings. They are lined on the back plane with a dimensional felt panel. This along with a soft wool carpet floor and large circular ceiling clouds help to damper sound within the library like environment. The space is currently under construction, and should be finished by summertime!
