Design consulting firm, The Pastilla Institute of Design, has sent over a nice tour of their office space located in Monrovia, California. Housed in a historical Route 66 gas station and mechanic shop from 1918, the space has been outfitted to inspire design and to facilitate collaboration.
With 10 employees, the open office’s layout moves the workstations to the perimeter to make room for a comfortable lounge space in the center. Workstations are brightly lit and come in a variety of sizes and privacy levels, and each is made up of a collection of Herman Miller and IKEA furnishings.
Though the entire office is not incredibly large, I’m impressed with the clever placement and spacing which give enough room for workstations, a lounge, a large conference table, kitchenette. The bright colors also add a nice depth and friendliness to the space as well.
