“Our new space embodies the values of minimalism and openness.”

Firm: KPMB Architects

Location: Toronto, Canada

Standout: The warm oak envelope throughout the firm’s mostly open plan is particularly highlighted in the café, courtesy of a customized version of a curvaceous LED ceiling fixture by Bjarke Ingels Group.

“Intentional mismatches are evident throughout.”

Mantab Group by S/Lab10. Photography by Heartpatrick.

Firm: S/Lab10

Project: Mantab Group

Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Standout: Appropriately, a former residence has been transformed into the property developer’s office, reception’s tinted-acrylic screens and sculptural PVD-coated stainless-steel stairway also supporting the company’s frequent entertaining.

“We created an inclusive office with meandering circulation.”

Project: Time Realty

Location: Sydney, Australia

Standout: Pressed bricks, old wallpaper, and 19th-century stucco (revealed after existing plaster was stripped from the salon turned developer office) pair with new built-ins and LED fixtures formed from polypropylene sheets.

“The concept of a box served as the starting point.”
