Olson Kundig Architects’ design preserves the building’s charm while optimizing to accommodate a contemporary workspace. Erin Sarofsky, the owner and creative director of Sarofsky, is known for her work in graphic design, motion pictures and TV industry. She met with the Olson Kundig team and expressed her desire to preserve the essence of the old structure but restore it to a degree that allows for a sleek modern interior to be housed inside it.

A series of open-plan offices can be closed off via gorgeous sliding steel doors. The center of the space houses two screening rooms and a large, open work area lit by clerestory windows. The airy central space also includes a large server room, an open kitchen with a long table area similar to the company’s previous space, and a reception area that doubles as a studio for filming and photography. The building provides access to the courtyard, which can be used for events.
