Small Law Office Interior Design by Nelson Resende

This minimalist place is a lawyer’s office and it’s located at Rua Pedro Álvares Cabral, nº 9, São João da Madeira, Portugal. The office was a project by Nelson Resende for Dra. Sandra R. Almeida. The office coveres an area os 49,80 square meters and its construction was completed in 2011. The office was organized in a small place in a commercial and residential building in Portugal, near the São João da Madeira’s Court.

Even though it’s rather small, the space allowed the creation of a lawyer’s office where all the essentials could be included. It’s a place for receiving clients and it includes a small washroom and the office itself. The office has large windows that allow plenty of natural light to be used during the day. In order to save as much space as possible, the walls of the office have been replaced by wardrobes. This way storage doesn’t represent a problem and it doesn’t take additional floor space.

The Flatmate fully equipped bureau

A desk needs to fulfill some requirements in order to be considered practical and functional. It needs to have certain dimensions dictated by the size of the room, it needs to include plenty of storage space and it also needs to be flexible. Usually there’s not a lot of space available so a compact desk is always welcomed. Flatmate is probably the smallest desk of this kind.

Flatmate is a small desk, a fully equipped unit that compensates with its functionality. The piece was designed by Michael Hilgers for the German design company Magazin. The desk is only 5 inches deep but this doesn’t stop it for being able to hold a laptop, the desktop items and the writing equipment. It also features additional storage space that opens from the sides.

Storage and Presentation Box from Pina Zangaro

When you are at home you can arrange all the things in different spaces, in wardrobes, bookcases, cabinets and whatever pieces of furniture you have around. But when you are at work, in an office, you have very little space and very few options for storing things, especially all the papers and small items you need in an office.

Of course, if you want to have an organized work place that will make a good impression on everyone entering it you must keep it clean at all times, but at the same time you must try to keep all the important stuff within reach in order to have immediate access to everything that;s important. So I guess this Storage and Presentation Box from Pina Zangaro is perfect for a busy office in a modern building.

This box is perfect, as it stores your most valuable papers in a perfectly safe and secure environment, but you can also use it as a presentation box. That means that you can take it with you when you have a presentation and then just get the things you have inside and show them to the interlocutor. The box is designed by Pina Zangaro and is very cool and modern. It is made of anodized aluminum and that makes it pretty lightweight. It has a lift -off lid which opens easily and has a nice professional grey colour. You can buy this one with $35, but it is available in different sizes.

Airbnb’s Lovely Headquarters in San Francisco

Airbnb’s San Francisco Headquarters caught our eye and we would like to share this experience with you. Airbnb is a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique spaces around the world online or from an iPhone device.

Designed by Garcia Tamjidi, this place is amazing. The architect tried to create a space that makes sense in the context of the company’s mission. The most interesting and unique things about it are the meeting rooms which are models of homes that are featured on their site. These rooms try to bring closer to them some designs that could represent what they do, some lovely interiors that could convince everyone of the advantages they would have if they turn to this company.
