Today’s company, Essent, is a large energy provider in Europe and the focus of today’s office. It is another project by the people at Ahrend. This space has some great details for a large company, and while the images are taken before employees have had a chance to move in, give us some interesting looks at spacing and placement of office decor.
The first element to notice are the wooden floors running throughout main traffic areas of the office. These can add a lot of character to an office, though if cheaply done can be extremely noisy. Another wonderful part of the office are the angled full-height windows on the exterior walls. These let in a ton of light (2000 lbs. worth). Another great looking detail are the drop lights in what appears to be the dining area. However, while they look great in photos, it would be interesting to know if that translates into great light coverage in real life.
