I am happiest when I have creative outlets or ongoing projects in addition to the work I do at Block Club. Planning and designing interior spaces is something I especially love.
When we started to plan our first real buildout for our new office at the beginning of this year, we were fortunate to find a blank, open canvas to start with. It’s a one-story building that dates back to the 1930s, situated on the recently rehabbed 700 block of Main Street. The space is long and narrow, with a beautiful brick wall extending the length of the space and huge windows at either end. We would have to build some walls to give privacy in the conference area and a few small offices, so we installed windows in most walls to allow natural light to travel from east to west.
I was particularly inspired by all of the interiors I’ve drooled over while traveling in Scandinavia. The space came with some of the prettiest hardwood floors I’ve seen. We chose a very clean, light gray and white color palette for walls, doors and baseboards in order to accent the hardwood floors and our existing wood desks, shelves and work spaces.
Move-in day came this past weekend and we’re starting to get settled in. There’s still lots of work to do, but we’re here, and most importantly, we’re working.
