eric jourdan

eric jourdan “I am more influenced by architects than designers. Maybe I have always secretly wanted to be an architect,” laughs Eric Jourdan, one of a handful of fast-rising French stars in the industry. It’s not a terribly surprising statement considering Jourdan comes from a long line of architects – perhaps explaining why a handful of his recent pieces are reminiscent of the work of early modernists, particularly those who designed both furniture and buildings. “I remember visiting a creation by Le…

Regeneration game

Regeneration game The Corby Cube opened its doors for the first time at summer’s end last year. A symbol in an ambitious 30-year plan to reverse the town’s fortunes, which plummeted after the steel industry finally gave up the ghost there in 1981 with the closure of the British Steel plant in the town. Designed by Hawkins/Brown, the Cube’s gleaming bar-coded facade and precise form encapsulated both the aspirations of a town and perhaps the method of regeneration. Housing a theatre, library,…

200 aldersgate

200 aldersgate Linda Morey Smith’s solitaire necklace catches the weak February sun. On the neck of any other woman, you might doubt this is the real thing, but after 20 minutes talking materials with Morey Smith, my only wonder is if she mined the diamonds and ground them into shape herself. After all, in 200 Aldersgate, Morey Smith, and Graeme Montague, the director at MoreySmith have taken on a stone so rough that many others have tried and failed to give it…

Office Nest

Office Nest Rarely does onoffice feature a project from Switzerland. It’s certainly not intentional, but maybe the unassuming Swiss are less inclined to parp their trumpet than the rest of us. Well, allow us to redress our absurd (and imaginary) bias against the bastion of neutrality with Office Nest – a new HQ for Zurich-based pension fund Nest Sammelstiftung by OOS AG. The brief was straightforward: design a flexible office space that comfortably houses the company’s growing headcount while reflecting its eco-friendly…

Esprit de corps

Esprit de corps For an object lesson in the dangers of judging a book by its cover, look no further than the offices of communications group Esprit de Corps (EdC), just off London’s Great Portland Street. The number 101 on the outside of the building is in a font ugly enough to make an art director cry and the main reception on the ground floor is identikit corporate. But as the lift doors open on the third floor, everything changes. Here’s where the…

Not to scale

Not to scale Not To Scale’s workspace seamlessly fuses functionality with comfort and personality. Three key forces came to shape the TV production company offices, which occupy a four-storey mid-century building on Manette Street, Soho. One was architect Andew Wong, a director of interiors firm modernarc. Versed in bespoke joinery work as well as devising interior schemes for homes and offices, Wong turned the offices from a narrow, empty laminate-floored shell into a warm, inviting workplace. A unique slatted meeting room and dismountable…

The Angel building

The Angel building “I wouldn’t call it a refurbishment – it’s really more of a reinvention,” says Wade Scaramucci, a lead architect for the newly revamped Angel Building designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. He’s right. Anyone who saw what previously stood on the corner of London’s Pentonville Road and St John Street would attest to the scale and extremity of this transformation. In its previous life as the Angel Centre, an early 1980s office block cut off from the street by a…
Invista’s Antron Lumena - ANTRON CARPET FIBRE Invista's Antron Lumena carpet fibre has been used in the BREEAM new academic building at Goldsmiths, University of London.
