  • Fieldwork Design has developed a beautiful, new office design for BeFunky located in Portland, Oregon.

    In the summer of 2014, San Francisco based BeFunky packed their bags and relocated to Portland. Settling into a newly renovated 3000sqft office in up and coming NE Portland, BeFunky sought the help of Fieldwork Design to give the space a Pacific Northwest feel and make it feel like home. The goal of the project was to create a workable, homelike environment that would give BeFunky employees a place they love coming to work in every day, while also providing a warm and inviting atmosphere for visitors.

    The 30’ high, arched truss ceiling makes the office feel extremely open and roomy so to bring intimacy to the space a 200sqft glass enclosed conference room, a 200sqft privacy nook with separate entrance, and an elevated 400sqft fully enclosed (and fully stocked!) Mad Men-esque whiskey lounge were constructed. Rather than working elbow to elbow, BeFunky had custom workstations built that give employees plenty of personal space and privacy with room for team collaborations. From the Kitchenette to the whiskey lounge, all the way down to the workstations, the entire space is custom built using White Oak, a wood native to the Pacific Northwest.
