From the architect. At Creneau’s, we firmly believe it’s our right to advocate ideas of the anti-ordinary. Blatantly ignoring the laws of Office Interiors, we came up with our own contemporary interpretation of how a legal firm should look like. In the waiting room, two artworks featuring the lasered signatures of the founder and his son function as a personal welcome to the visitor.

Over to the main meeting room, via a ‘naked’ staircase that appears to be kept in place with steal cables. Desktops discreetly rise from and disappear into a custom-made table, wooden table tops introduce warmth into the industrial frame of the office. Piece the resistance in the building is a private meeting room that can only be reached through a secret stairway in the main meeting room. Featuring a wall of (fake) books that doubles as an acoustic screen, and classic cornice mouldings framing the concrete ceiling, this room exudes contrast and creativity.
