Taking advantage of large, existing skylights and an exposed wood structure, this commercial interior for a mobile game developer combines a fun and flexible office environment with casual spaces for play, relaxation, and work. Modular desks sit in the center of an open office surrounded by a lounge, glass-enclosed conference rooms, and a large open kitchen. Walls are painted in bright, brand-oriented colors or coated with white-board paint. The carpet, an index of activities programmed above with a nod to the pixel, is a composition of carpet tiles developed in our office using parametric software. Built on a fast pace with shoestring-budget, the office uses simple two-circuit exposed fluorescent lighting in an asymmetrical diamond grid to animate the ceiling between the existing skylights.
