A Stunning Office from Amsterdam

     Travel review site Zoover recently moved to a famous former confectionery factory at the NieuweLooiersdwarsstraat at the heart of Amsterdam, marking a huge step for the organization in terms of branding, their lifestyle and with that, their appeal to IT talent in the market. D/DOCK was commissioned to oversee the interior design, project management and construction, the result is an impressive, clear design that inspires a certain wanderlust.
   
Concrete and Leather in Melbourne

     The client’s brief was to create a spatial experience providing not only the user with an open aired space but also allowing staff from the floor and kitchen the opportunity to look outwards into this open volume. A burnished grey concrete floor plane is lightly ground back to expose loose ends of aggregate. Orthogonal concrete elements rise from this floor creating a coffee and waiting station, married with terrazzo clad plinths, which form seating. The walls are clad in a veil of perforated aluminum that folds itself across the creases of the walls creating a screen to the kitchen and a smaller private dining area.
   
Campari’s New Toronto Offices

     When commissioned by Gruppo Campari to design their new Toronto office, IV’s brief was simple ’create a space which captures the spirit of the company and inspires the people who use it’. To achieve this mandate the design team looked to the past to inform the future. Gruppo Campari represents a comprehensive collection of some of the world’s finest drinks, ranging from vodkas to whiskeys and beyond and was well deserving of an exciting makeover.
   
Mexican Memories in Toronto

     Multi disciplinary studio +tongtong recently designed Torteria San Cosme, a Mexican sandwich shop in Toronto’s eclectic Kensington Market. Principal designer John Tong worked closely with his client Arturo Anhalt to bring his childhood memories of Mexico into the 700 square foot space. With this objective in mind. Torteria San Cosme evokes the vibrant color, playfulness and authenticity of Mexican street food stands.
   
A Unique Approach, A Unique Client

     Designer Melina Romano was hired to oversee interior design for a technology company that wanted to stand out in its segment by positioning itself as unique in both approach and attitude. By using innovative and unusual elements such as containers, bricks, decorative pipes, and other materials, the Nimbi project was born, an unusual space that is sure to attract their customers attention and stimulate employees, as well as fostering a new work philosophy thanks to the ways in which it has changed the company’s view of the work environment.
