The space had been disused for almost 10 years when architects Resell+Nicca moved into the ground floor corner unit of the 1930’s international style building overlooking Kampen Park. Major refurbishment was required to turn the small, then subdivided space, into an inspiring studio that is welcoming to clients, functional as a collaborative space and a positive contribution to the public realm outside. The space was reimagined into an open plan office that included a kitchenette, desks and a meeting space as well as a library and surfaces to display physical models that Resell+Nicca had created.
Light Bureau collaborated closely with the Resell+Nicca on the design and manufacture of tailor-made luminaires that populate the space, ensuring consistent geometry and materiality across all elements added to the space.
The luminaire bodies were made from sheets of darkened steel. By folding steel in three different ways, three unique luminaire types with different light distributions were created from the same material, using the same light source.
Suspended linear uplights provide glare-free light above the desks, extending the natural light outside deeper into the space. A linear downlight illuminate the kitchen counter with a focused light. Wall mounted wallwashers create a feature of the architectural models on display for clients visiting the studio and curious passers-by in the park outside.
