working within the design industry in new york city, i’ve had the opportunity in visiting some amazing office spaces. it seems like companies within creative industries focuses greatly on the interior design of their space. after all if you want your designers.. creatives, whatever to stay inspired and want to work.. you have to put them in inspiring atmospheres.
at the current moment my job is starting our office renovations. though i’m not sure what the plans are for renovations exactly it’s pretty cool having some interior designers in the house. i like to watch them work and secretly wish i could be one of them. something about architecture and interior design really gets my shit going. seriously. even though i have no control over the office renovations, i’ve been looking at more and more cool office interiors to get some inspiration. inspiration for what.. i don’t know just yet but i’m having quite a good time gawking at nicely decorated office. since i use this blog as a catalog of amazing design, i figured i’d start sharing any cool office interiors i come across. please be advised, some of these interiors will make you want to quit your job and work for companies with cooler spaces. just warning ya’ll. today, let’s look at one of my favorite office spaces: urban outfitters.
built from the shell of a dilapidated navy shipyard in Philadelphia, the 100+ year old campus of urban outfitters has breathed creative life back into the once industrious building complex. designed by meyer scherer & rockcastle, the 350,000+ sqft project provides an epic backdrop for the brands it houses – urban outfitters, free people, and anthropologie – to call home.
i think the main thing i love about this office space is the huge windows that allow an ample amount of natural light in. i just prefer working in natural lighting as opposed to fluorescent light if i don’t have to. i’m also loving the whole bohemian meets rustic feel that’s going on. as of lately i’ve been gravitating towards more fun prints and patterns so i’m really a fan of how they incorporate patterns throughout the whole building.
