Urban Influence Offices

During my visit to Seattle last week, I had the opportunity to visit the offices of Urban Influence, a branding/creative company located in the Capital Hill neighborhood. The company was recently notified that their lease was up at the old office, so they quickly found this new space and have been working to properly make it their own.

After going through what looked like a steel blastdoor and up some stairs, we were greeted by a warm loft space, with a lot of natural light and room to expand. The company is currently hiring as well.

One of the more completed areas in the conference space, which uses reclaimed stable doors, to which were added the names of the horses that used to call them home. Urban Influence opted to use custom-made tables for their employee workstations as to preserve the specific look they were going for. Those tables, in addition to the exposed brick, old wood beams, and wood floors (not to mention the fact that the space is half-finished) give the office a very rugged appearance.

A unique feature we noted was a red occupancy light that adorns the wall above the restroom letting potential users know they should come back later.

With all that said, it will be great to see how the company and office space progress in the near months.¬†Hopefully we’ll be able to get a few more images one the space is finished.
