Top Secret Stuff

designersDIRTYLAUNDRY.com

I am excited to show you some things I’ve been working on lately on the side… a very TOP-SECRET project somewhere in the wonderful state of Arkansas! I’ve been fortunate enough to have an amazing client (you’ll find out soon who it is) who is on board with my vision and who is progressive in everything they do! I am designing a new advertising agency, that will also offer leasable spaces for small entrepreneurs or businesses in the area. Here are some of the big ideas and key features:

[THINK TANK]

Everything revolves around the think tank in the center of the open office. That is where ideas are shared, brainstorming goes down, and magic happens. That is the bread and butter to this business.

[STUDIO APARTMENT]

There is a small studio apartment equipped with full bathroom, kitchen, living room, and bedroom. This will save $$ for the advertising agency long-term as clients come in from all-over, removing all hotel costs.

[OPEN PLAN]

Because this client is all about communication and putting together ideas, we decided to do a completely open office. No private offices, the Lord shall bless them for this.

[KIT OF PARTS]

There will be a “kit-of-parts” for each employee/tenant to choose from to make their workstation efficient and personalized. They will get to choose from a plethora of red toolboxes, plywood storage cabinets on casters, white table tops on black tressel legs, or mobile marker boards.

[PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO]

It will have its very own in-house (yet independent) photography studio. This is an asset to the advertising agency’s clients in so many ways, while also allowing an up-and-coming photographer to lease a space at a reasonable cost! (the photo below was taken by him… he’s pretty awesome huh?)

    I love your design! I’ve noticed that the open office trend is very popular. I like that all of your storage pieces are mobile. That will make the workspace very versatile for all of the different functions that the end user will be using the space for. The end users will be able to collaborate when they need to and also perform more “heads down” work when required. My office is very much the same way. Our furniture is not mobile, but we have a very open setting with low panels, etc. One thing that we have in our office is a “privacy room.” All it is is a glorified closet with a work surface and a chair. It’s for making private phone calls. It’s nice to have in a very open collaborative space when you don’t want the entire world to hear your phone call.

    • Thanks Tarabeth! I think you’re completely right about the privacy room… I try to incorporate them into every open office I do. For some reason though, some are used all the time, and some are not. I have clients with multiple phone rooms and they say their employees will go outside to take a call before they jump into the phone enclave. Human nature is weird. From my experience, it seems like booths with some natural light are used more than those that aren’t. And ones with hinged doors instead of sliding. Thanks for stopping by!
