Fosbury and Sons is a new co-working office space in Antwerp, Belgium. Located in the WATT-tower, close to the central station, this office space is the place for freelancers looking for an office away from home. The interior is designed by Going East, a design studio from Antwerp. The aim was to create a new and positive workspace that breaks asway from a conventional office space. There are several workareas and lounge places in Fosbury and Sons thereby creating a dynamic workspace for freelancers and companies looking for a meeting place.
The last post of my best of 2016 series is about workspaces/offices. Small or large I posted some very inspiring workspaces this year and these are my favourites.
If you’re working from home an inspiring workspace is a must! Creative director and designer Sarah Sherman Samuel used to work from her garage but after an expension of her family she thought it’s time for an office upgrade. Her office used to be a guest house that was mainly used for storage. To create this wonderful light space they ripped everything out and added skylights to give the space as much natural light as possible. The goal was to create a modern but relaxed style in her office. With light colors and an emphasis on natural materials she created an office I’m certainly jealous of!
Soludos is a shoebrand that gets inspired by local wanderings. So when it was time for a new office, they wanted a space consistent with those inspirations. Soludos asked Shelly Lynch-Sparks of Homepolish to style their new SoHo office space. The office space had to be flexible so it’s suitable for normal work, events and business meetings. But most importantly they wanted the office to make people feel as if they understand who they are and what they’re trying to do as a company. The office space really has an Mediterranean vibe. The rugs are handpicked from Marrakech and the furniture looks as if it’s handpicked from a Mediterranean flea market. The blue colors and custom made wallcoverings from Chasing Paper give the impression of being at the seaside.
It is no secret that I love everything that Holly Marder of Avenue Lifestyle styles. I have probably featured almost all her projects on this blog or my tumblr. Holly’s design aesthetic is just simply beautiful. With light colors, Scandinavian design and the occasional vintage items she makes every space cozy, bright and interesting. This home office is her latest project, it’s part of a penthouse redecoration whose bedroom I have already featured before on my blog. The home office has a minimalistic feel with lots of white, grey and light furniture. The lovely light green wall give the space some color. I love the brightness of this space, without making it feel cold or empty. This home office is the perfect space to get inspired and get some work done!
Earlier I showed you a Scandinavian styled apartment that I found on Behance. These 3D images of an artistic studio are created by the same person who created that apartment and I think I’m in love. The studio walls are filled with artwork (that owl is magnificent) and on one side storage was created with String shelves. There is plenty of workspace with the long desk underneath the industrial windows and the large table in the center of the studio. It’s a beautiful combination of industrial elements with Scandinavian design and I think many artists would love to have a workspace like this.
