Walls or no walls?

Walls or no walls?

We are big fans of open plan offices, so much so that most of our projects aim to break up walls and create flexible spaces without barriers. Crumbling those pesky cubicles lead to better communication, encourage collaboration and improve speed of work. It’s no surprise that more and more modern agencies are embracing this open-office...
5 Great Interior Design Books

The Best Architecture & Interior Design Blogs

The Best Architecture & Interior Design Blogs

Despite technically being an architecture and interior design blog ourselves, we generally steer clear of posting too many pictures of the glam houses and mind blowing design that we find around the Internet.
