Local Office, a co-working space in West University, provides residents a place to work, play, and build their network. The project is a mixed use, commercial rehabilitation of a former light industrial services building. Changes to the building, derived from the inside-out, demonstrate the urban-scale impact of Inventure Design’s interior design, reflecting trending changes in the nature of work and the workplace.
The interior design was inspired by the 1920’s history of the area. Many of the West University streets were named after well known authors during that time, and this became one of the driving factors behind the look and feel of the space. A library was incorporated into the community breakroom, and the furnishings were selected to give the user a sense of stepping back in time to a 1920’s bookstore.
