Tumblr’s New Office

2011. 2. 13. 10:30 from 拾得物

Microblogging site Tumblr (Think of it as Twitter on steroids) is making a lot of news of late. After steadily growing their
userbase, acquiring millions in funding recently and strengthening their brand at
fashion events, they are now adding
a new office in Richmond(state capital of Virginia in US). The building they are set to occupy is a 40,000 square feet
historic warehouse colorfully revamped by architecture practice 3North.

These are images of the interiors of the building where Tumblr is to set up shop.

Although the footprint of the historic warehouse aligns with modern office building standards, the design emphatically
avoids the typical building core diagram by pushing service spaces to one edge. This allows for an open and flexible
floor plan which emphasizes both the scale of the space and the connectedness of the tenants. In addition, this
approach creates a central circulation route which encourages interaction and organizes shared spaces such as
reception, an informal lounge, and a large, multi-media conference room
