Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean recently took a trip over to London for a tour of the MR PORTER Headquarters in Shepherd’s Bush. It’s a massive space, one that houses the site’s entire editorial staff, retail departments and a handful of design studios to keep things running smoothly at all times. The meeting spaces scattered throughout the building are well thought out and are extremely inviting. The fact that such a magnificent space is housed atop a mall in London reminds us that large office spaces are extremely limited in London. Not many areas can keep up with MR PORTER’s growth so this spot is perfect for them now and as they continue to build. Read more over at ACL with some of our favorite shots below.
New York Videographer Jake Davis recently took a trip over to the office of Donwan Harrell, the founder and creative director of PRPS. Over the years, PRPS has been able to appeal to a wide range of consumers under Donwan’s direction, always being able to re-imagine the collections to bend with the times. “Upon meeting at the PRPS showroom and more specifically Donwan’s office you get an incredible feeling of nostalgia for yesteryear Americana. Part museum, part amusement park, part trap house… You don’t know where to look or even how to start.” There’s a ton to see and these photos don’t do Donwan’s workspace justice.
Last week, Google opened their offices in Los Angeles just blocks from Venice Beach. They’re located at the former Chiat/Day Building, commonly called the Binoculars Building for an obvious reason. It was designed by Frank Gehry, whose next project in Los Angeles was the Disney Concert Hall. The space is quite inviting and we’re sure the company’s entire LA team will enjoy working here. There’s a big open cafe area that opens up to the outdoor patio area. Behind the sharply angled wooden walls are work area, giving the space an amazing balance of work and play. One of our favorite parts of the office is the Eames meeting room, which happens to be built with glass walls all around and just a single walkway connecting to it, giving it a floating, isolated feel.
