MODERN OFFICE IN AN INDUSTRIAL BUILDING.
After a long break from the blogging world, I was recently contacted by Soile Makkonen of Ada and Ina, who specialise in domestic upholstery and curtain fabrics. I was immediately inspired by their diverse range of colour and pattern choice.
It was also great to see the recent pictures of their new office situated at Logomo in Turku. Logomo is a premise for creative entrepreneurs and has a footprint of over 5000 sqm. The building is steeped in history and in a previous life was a machine factory back in the 1800s. These industrial characters form the basis for the quirky accessories within the breakout and communal eating areas.
Staying true to its roots.
Industrial light pendants that look worn down and as old as the building itself add character to the backdrop of modern surfaces and materials. Old shipping crates create tables and where possible the existing brickwork is kept on show, albeit painted but again this pays homage to the charm and nostalgia within the building. It's great to see a building such as this re-used and re-imagined for another purpose and there seems to be a success especially with buildings that once had an Industrial past. Having previously worked in a similar location, it was almost like going to work in somewhere out of a history book.
