UNStudio Nestled in a patch of parkland in Groningen, the Netherlands, sits a new office building that has been touted as one of the greenest in Europe. It’s certainly one of the most flamboyant. The 92m-tall tower, designed for the city’s Education Executive Agency and Tax Office, has the sort of aerodynamic expression generally reserved for pavilions, museums or modern churches – not sensible offices built during straightened times. The structure’s undulating curves, accented by horizontal fins flowing across the facade,…

Saunders Architecture's Long Studio

Saunders Architecture's Long Studio A dynamic black object perches on a rocky outcrop in the north Atlantic, its angular form somehow appearing indigenous and otherworldly in equal measures. This is Fogo Island, a windswept archipelago off the north coast of Newfoundland and home to around 3,000 people. Raised up on wooden struts, the structure recalls the architecture of fishermen’s houses that scatter the landscape. It is poetic, a fact embellished by the building’s function as an artist’s studio, but its existence is due to…

Onesize by Origins Architecture

Onesize by Origins Architecture The colonisation of former industrial spaces by the creative industries has become a familiar tale over the last decade.

Azure office in Kiev

Azure office in Kiev In the current drive to demonstrate austerity and up space efficiency, the element of fun in office design often seems to fall by the wayside. Which is why looking further afield, to more unexpected places, can often pay dividends. It is the bold use of colours, materials and shapes found in Azure’s new offices in Kiev that many of us have been missing. The big allure of this project is its playfulness and imagination. Sergey Makhno, the designer behind it,…

No Picnic by Elding Oscarson

No Picnic by Elding Oscarson As a rule, mirrored walls are a no-no. Exceptions apply to aerobics studios, police interrogation rooms and 1970s discotheques, but otherwise this design feature has no place in civilised society. Or so we thought. Every now and then onoffice receives a scheme in its inbox that prompts a collective sigh of admiration (and longing) from the entire team. Elding Oscarson’s space for Stockholm design firm No Picnic is one of those. It’s a brainy beauty – making the most of…

Trapeze by Peter Stathis

Trapeze by Peter Stathis Of the many recent task light launches, this has to be one of the most visually arresting. The Trapeze LED Table Light, the work of American designer Peter Stathis and produced by Joby, can be precisely positioned thanks its the bulb-like counterweight. It features a slimline flat-panel LED that produces a warm, even light over large areas, meaning it is no slouch in the efficiency department either.
