The Challenge

Board of Innovation chose a building in the heart of Antwerp built in the 1900s. Designed in classical style and featuring a majestic entry hall and marble staircase, 4-meter high ceilings and a protected historical bookcase, this masterpiece eludes history and tradition.

The idea was to redesign the interiors of this unique structure, with all its character, into a creative and off-beat workspace. The new office needed to support various activities: focused work, meetings, collaborating, socializing and relaxing.

The Outcome

When we started to create the layout for all floors, we focused on Board of Innovation's brand concepts: international, innovative and non-obvious. New spaces were designed to support the team's activities and spark creativity, and make clients and visitors feel welcomed. We integrated custom-made design solutions throughout the space, such as a 10m long coffee bar, a treehouse nap room, plant walls, a life-size gorilla and red mustang cut in half.

To honor these unexpected details and complete the story of this extraordinary space, we opted for designer furnishings, natural materials, an abundance of plants bold colors, especially the branded red.
