Modern working spaces are having a moment since it’s becoming more apparent that small cubicles, fluorescent lighting and drab interiors aren’t always conducive to higher productivity. Basically, the happier you are in your workplace, the more you’ll want to do what you do. We’ve all seen (and felt extremely jealous of) Google offices around the world and now heaps of other companies are taking note.
The ALP Logistics Office in Taipei, Taiwan re-purposed a warehouse to house their main office and reception, commissioning JC Architecture to bring their vision to life. They’ve utilised the more utilitarian objects normally found in a warehouse like shipping containers, palettes and racking systems to create multi-level ‘spaces within a space’, meaning you’ll see things like shipping containers suspended overhead acting as private workspaces or meeting rooms. It may not be the same as having an in-house gym or a video game room like Google, but we’d still gladly take it over traditional working spaces any day.
The warehouse retains an industrial feel but the giant glass windows and doors mean the space is flooded with natural light. The end result is truly #officegoals; a dynamic and open environment, complete with some indoor plants to breathe even more life into the space.
