Blind’s office by Shubin + Donaldson Architects, Santa Monica – California

July 26th, 2014 by retail design blog

A playful yet sophisticated composition of materials, textures, and styles describes a dynamic architectural proxy for the inspired energy of this motion graphics firm. The conversion of a non-descript two level storage warehouse into a modern creative office space nurtures a dialogue between compliment and contrast, mixing historical ornament with simple/strong material expression and irreducible detail.

The entry sequence is initiated by the insertion of a warm Ipe wood-lined portico leading to a darkly rendered upper level lobby where lace patterned panels and molding coincide in juxtaposition to polished concrete and blackened steel plate. These formal and material relationships characterize, stimulate, and foster the willful and innovative thought occurring within.
