SQUARESPACE HQ- NYC

Squarespace’s new headquarters are located in the former printing-district in New York’s West Village in the 12-story 1927 Maltz Building. The project architecture firm, A+I took a hospitality approach to the redesign of the Squarespace offices. From the street, passersby’s can visibly see into the layed back offices somewhat mimicking the likes of a hotel lobby. Apparently, A+I took inspiration from Roman+Williams design of the lobby located at Manhattan’s  Ace Hotel.  Squarespace is a continually fast growing tech web platform company that wanted a strong brand identity when it came to its design. The interior is of a minimal color off-white paint, concrete floors and ebonized wood paneling. Founder and CEO Anthony Casalena says “The brand identity is very black-and-white but you’ll never see a hard black or a hard white- we varied the materials to get lots of texture. I’ve come to understand the power of design. When it comes to brand identity, if it looks clean and smooth, it has a lot more credibility.” I would absolutely love to work in a free flowing, open, modern space such as this one.

PIERCE & WARD

The recent reveal of Lily Aldridge (Model) and Caleb Followill’s (Musician- Kings of Leon) Nashville, Tennessee home via Architectural Digest  is very homie and in a great way! It is decorated in an eccentric style, though I am not always fond of  that particularly look I like how the fun duo Pierce & Ward have decorated it. Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward are the cool female duo behind Pierce & Ward and the extension of their personalities makes their interiors unique, vibrant and stylish. I want to be friends with them just based on their about description.

I do not recall the first time I saw a James Nares painting, but I do remember immediately falling in love and having to find out who this artist was.

The brushes used are custom designed by the artist. Most of James’s paintings are produced in a single brushstroke and he doesn’t deem a painting successful until it is “balanced”.

I would be thrilled if I had one of his paintings in my home.
