Office Space: Urban Outfitters Headquarters

Don't you just love a thoughtful and well-executed adaptive reuse? For as long as I can remember I've loved old buildings and have valued their preservation so I was so excited when I saw this Urban Outfitters project. The Philadelphia based company moved their 600+ employees from their five or so buildings in downtown Philly to a no-longer-used and newly renovated Navy yard. The campus is stunning as is the interior of the huge buildings. I'd love to work in such a lovely (and environmentally friendly) building. Read more about the design, and watch a video on the process, here.

  1. What an inspiring office space! Urban Outfitters sure have an eye for fine designs, not only on clothes, but also on office spaces! Each corner is filled with cool designs and patterns. There are a lot of elements in the space but they all go well together and create one chic working space.
