WHERE WE WORK: CREATIVE SPACES
Where We Work: Creative Office Spaces by Ian McCallam
In Where We Work (HarperCollins, April 27, 2010), Ian McCallam, the creator of the website This Ain’t No Disco (It’s Where We Work) features Fahrenheit 212 among the most inspiring office interiors in the world.
With full-color photographs, floor plans, and architectural sketches of office spaces across five continents, Where We Work is the first book of its kind to highlight the most contemporary, creative, and efficient office designs from the world’s most respected and cutting-edge firms.
Where We Work explores how creative agencies transform lifeless commercial spaces into bastions of creativity, offering inspiring interiors and visual insight into the breadth and depth of each agency’s thought process. By removing the traditional office furnishings and even the typical office culture, this new kind of workspace inspires coworkers to be at their most creative—free to relax, think, and accessorize—and visitors to dream of spending their own workdays within its walls. Whether the concepts are personal, indulgent, or simply well thought out, Where We Work invites the reader to discover a variety of offices where the pursuit of imagination is the driving force.
A five-page spread on Fahrenheit 212’s interior showcases the unique design elements and compliments the designers, our very own Jon Crawford-Phillips and Marcus Oliver, on the cohesiveness of their vision. As Oliver explains, “The aesthetic was informed by our brand, and the nature of our client relationships. The personality of our company is a mix of gravitas and irreverence. We wanted to a create a studio feel that was professional and at the same time stimulating and surprising.” Crawford-Phillips adds, “The way we work, rather than a theme, inspired our design… We’re a unique combination of strategic and creative – the Money & Magic – and we wanted everyone who entered here to experience that.”
Now, readers of Where We Work drawn in by photographs of our logoed fireplaces, 700-pound conference table, and mahogany library can experience the Money and the Magic as well.
