Four tech and finance companies rock out at the office:
1. Firm: AECOM
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Standout: Embossed ceramic wall tiles replicate Antoni Gaudí’s reliefs on local sidewalks, while the tile colors allude to the Mediterranean, also nearby.
2. Firm: Tim Murphy Design Associates
Location: Palo Alto, California
Standout: Pebble-shape ottomans by Ichiro Iwasaki are the perfect complement to the flowing rivulets CNC-milled into reception’s walnut canopy and wall.
3. Firm: Studio O+A
Location: San Francisco, California
Standout: Lengths of textiles, draped overhead in the lounge, combine with a Bosphorus-blue wall, behind a coffee bar, to evoke the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
4. Firm: Elkus Manfredi Architects
Project: Potamus Trading
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Standout: A graffiti mural says “urban jungle,” its most conspicuous residents being painted fiberglass renditions of the hippopotamus in this brokerage’s name.
