Inspiration: Landscaping

Spring is upon us…and it’s about time I get my yard in to shape….

Here are a few of my favorite landscaping images.


Workplace: The Inspired Office

Inspired by Creativity:

WPP Detroit - Designed by Gensler


WPP’s new offices consolidate six separately operating advertising agencies in one location. Drawing inspiration from the creative nature of advertising and the character of Michigan, Gensler’s design stripped the suburban office building down to its shell to gain ceiling height and a more loft-like feel.

Inspired by Topography:

Skype Luxembourg HQ by WAM


From WAM:  The undulating topography of the ceiling is conceived to encourage movement through the office.  This project forms the blueprint for Skype offices globally to provide a more fluid, dynamic office layout that supports the nomadic, roving nature of many of the Skype employees and the way they work.

Inspired by Technology:


The design reflects the Atari brand, includes plasma display screens situated throughout the space, and incorporates sustainable products such as bamboo flooring.  Designed by Nelson.

Inspired by Glamour:

Spanx HQ


Designed by TVS:  These community-oriented spaces reflect SPANX culture. “This was the first time they looked at how interior design would reflect their personality and support how they work,” says tvsdesign principal Steve Clem.  Images from Interior Design Magazine.

Inspired by Hockey:



The interior is a montage of materials and wintry colors that reflect the game of hockey, including the stainless steel of skate blades and the white of ice, said Frederic M. Strauss, principal in TPG Architecture of New York, the designers of the new offices. (from NYT)
