FINE Boora

5475 sqf office space of FINE Design Group, located in Portland, was updated with creative idea of Boora Architects. Work resulted in a loft-like open office environment of a relaxed sentiment.

From the Architects:

This new work environment for FINE Design Group embodies the creative agency’s energy and collaborative nature.

To create the new space, Boora Architects capitalized on the exposed steel structure, concrete floors, and abundance of natural light of a 5 475 sqf raw shell space. The result is a loft-like open office environment with a relaxed feel.

Within the open space, key elements define distinct program zones:

 The “Barn” is a 3-pronged room that floats at the west end of the space and houses two offices and the agency’s conference room.  The Barn’s complex shape creates the opportunity for distinct program areas around its exterior – the billiards area is sheltered on one side while team work spaces face the kitchen and the open workstations.  Wrapped in a writable and magnetic surface, the walls are used for brainstorming and pin-up space.

The residential-scale kitchen is a staff gathering spot and the hub for the many events the group hosts.  Tile from Heath Ceramics, glazed in a custom pattern of matte and gloss, defines the space with a continuous field of color from wall to floor.  Floating shelves hold dishes and healthy snacks and a custom butcher block island completes the space.

At the east end of the office, Boora designed a walnut-clad bookcase that houses an eclectic mix of books and objects. Functionally, the bookcase screens the print/copy zone, provides a touch-down spot for laptop users, and frames the lounge area.  Curtains can be drawn between the lounge and open workstations to divide the space and provide visual privacy.
