Construction has started on the offices we designed outside of the Raleigh Durham Airport (RDU) in North Carolina. The 14,000sf office for an international technology company is scheduled for completion by the end of July, and will feature a combination of colorful accents and reclaimed industrial artifacts. The work areas will have natural wood work surfaces, and the entire office will have a range of lounge, meeting, and communal spaces to accommodate many different types of interaction between employees.
The office, designed by Pliskin Architecture with the help of Tina Barnard Designs in Morrisville, will be fully operational this summer and will feature furniture fabricated locally by Bull City Designs in Durham.
The summer installations by K&Co and Pliskin Architecture at the Manhattan Park Pool have entered their 2nd year, with the 2016 being launched this past Memorial Day. Like last year, the new installation features an 8,000sf mural with a bright color palette, and will accompany the pools other design elements, ranging from lounge chairs, hammocks, sun-brellas, and more. This year’s mural is by Andrew Faris and is titled Block Party – it uses bright colors that are similar to those in last year’s installation, but re-imagines the pool in Andrew’s unique vocabulary. The mural and the pool have garnered the attention of local blogs and media outlets, including Curbed, Gothamist, Timeout New York, Architectural Digest, and The Architect’s Newspaper.
