Dutch Design Firm Converts Auto Garage Into Their New Office

New, 3 comments

Once a garage belonging to the largest General Motors affiliate in the Netherland, this once-derelict 1920s building (which actually looks somewhat like an austere church from the outside) has now been converted into the headquarters of the cutting edge Dutch design firm Studio Boot. Located in the center of the interestingly-named city of 's-Hertogenbosch, the office has a transparent gabled roof, a floor-length display case painted eggshell blue, glossy white tiles on the walls, and its original sliding doors. The building was once used to build cars and buses, and much of its former layout remains, with the large ground-level garage now home to a conference room, work space, and, in a nod to the past, an old car decorated with text. According to the design firm, "hordes of interested parties" have already wandered through this beautifully reimagined building.
