Creating a cohesive office space over two floors for Copenhagen publishing house
THE CLIENT BRIEF
A group of Danish publishing houses, Rosinante & Co, moved to to floors of new office spaces, near Kultorvet in central Copenhagen. The project brief was to interconnect the two floors, by designing a brand new stairway – which had to be beautiful and significant looking, but also, of course, functional.
Second part of the brief was to transform the lunch room into a multi-functional, bright and inviting space.
The stairwell is created as two elements: a heavy oak wood podium to form the base – and from this podium access to the wall covered with book cases, is easy. From the podium an airy and light looking staircase rise to the upper floor.
The lunch room has been extended with a sofa lounge and a meeting room. We laid down new wooden floors, and their distinctive herringbone pattern became a motif for the foil decoration on the glass partitions. A both aesthetic and functional detail, providing a bit of privacy for lunch meetings. The use of large, slatted wooden lamp shades, is another space defining element.
