Office Architecture at Osterlund Architects

We believe office architecture is an evolving but still vital part of city architecture and interior design. We recently completed a renovation of the Cary Oil Company office headquarters in Cary, NC, and we also designed our architecture firm’s own office space in the historic Raleigh Building.

Office spaces are today’s enigma for interior design and architecture. We’re not sure where we’re working, we’re not sure if we want to work in our homes or live in our offices. All we know is that we work best when we’re together. We want our offices to be safe, we want to see the sun and the city through our windows, we want to see farther into the future when we work in our offices than when we dream in our houses. More than ever, acoustics matter, our conference rooms have to work as multi-media studios, and they have to serve our guests more than ever before. Office designs today are about open spaces and closed spaces, about movement and about presence. There is no right answer to office Architecture and Interior Design, but there are right answers to how we care for our colleagues, our staff, and our clientele – and those are the places we start when we design offices.

Duke Street Office Building

This project’s task was to update the exterior components of the basement and to show through renderings what an office space could look like for potential tenants. The entrance to the basement was in desperate need of improvements. So, a new storefront system was recommended to better articulate what kind of space the basement could be. It was the part of the building that was overlooked in the past but has a lot of potential. Along with the storefront, some exterior improvements were proposed for the plaza right outside the basement. Once the exterior improvements are complete, the interior will be further developed.
