Given two and a half months and an empty warehouse, Amsterdam-based firms Melinda Delst Interior Design and Studio Modderman have transformed this 131-year-old space into a colorful, minimalist open office. The warehouse's old wooden structure and cast-iron columns remain unchanged but its expansive floor has been interspersed with a playful mixture of vintage furniture and lighting. Even the stand-alone rooms' wooden floors and windows were reclaimed from the previous tenants. This thriftiness also reflects the client, the Dutch company Fairphone, which produces smartphones with environmentally-friendly and recycled materials.
