office spaces | urban outfitters campus

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.

    thanks to this post i have an itch to go and try to find somewhere to awesome to work! this is great. and youre right, natural light makes all of the difference sometimes. it’s so interesting because in older homes in the south (like the one i live in) natural light just didnt seem to be a thing back then…wherever i move next will definitely have more of that! especially in my work space!! 🙂

      Hey Shonda! Thanks for stopping by! And yeah, the article I got the pics from was basically talking about how employee production increased and no one really took off days unless ill. Crazy what a beautiful space can do for work production.

  • Chef Demetra Overton

      Right? That’s what I’m loving. That natural lights + open space + all the foliage is like the perfect outdoor indoors.

  • Wow, for reals?! I’m seriously jealous. Their workplace is amazing!

  • I can’t believe this exquisiteness exits in Philly, much less THE NAVY YARD!! So amazingly gorgeous… how can any employee there not walk in & immediately feel on top of the world!

    this building is absolutely gorgeous. i can’t believe it’s less than 30 minutes from where i live. you already have me contemplating leaving my current job. do you think if i showed up at their doorstep, bearing my smarts, heart, and wits, they’d hire me? seriously contemplating it…seriously!
