In today’s trend, an office is often a symbol that shows the company’s identity and character. That is also what happens to Sunset Magazine‘s new office. Designed by RMW architecture & interiors, the office design displays a specific character which tells more about the company.
Homey Design for Lifestyle Mag’s Homebase
As the magazine is primarily about western culture and lifestyle, the design of its office really shows what it is really about. For an office, the decoration seems so homey with some elements like kitchens, a library, and cozy lounges.
The other areas are still cozy and attractive with a marriage of industrial and western wine cultures. The exposed beams, ducts, piping, and bricks are some instances that add industrial style to this office. Still, the cozy and homey feeling of the office is very strong, thanks to the wide space volume.
Another interesting element in this office is the wine cellar near the entry which increases its western character. The selection of this element of wine culture is to restate its preference that includes wine as one of the discussion topics in their magazine in addition to western food, home, and nature.
Moreover, indoor pergolas decorate several spaces that tell more about what they do and like in the office. They also create a semi-open partition to the office sub-divisions. There are at least three wooden pergolas with louvered roofs and all are with different designs.
The additions for office partitions have created a more relaxed feeling compared with the common office cube model that restricts communication and gives cramped look to the office space.
While industrial elements are filling every aspect of this office, the additions of two kitchens used for creating content have created such a bounce to the antique quality. The professional kitchen design with a more modern look at both office kitchens is creating dynamic streams inside this office. This is effective to pump more positive energy to keep productive as it is also preventing people to get bored sooner.
