Rigby & Rigby are delighted to announce that our Project OSL 195, has been shortlisted in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2023 by Design Et Al.
For over 14 years now, Design Et Al Magazine & The International Design & Architecture Awards aim has been to promote the leading companies in the interior design & architecture industry and bring together the design elite of this industry for an international celebration of your work. Having your work shortlisted is believed to be “the pinnacle of recognition within the industry.” Only the best within the industry can be shortlisted.
Rigby & Rigby’s project was successfully shortlisted by the Design Et Al Magazine panel. The voting process really sets these awards apart from other Awards, instead of a small judging panel of 10-20 professionals, for the 2023 Awards will have over 80,000 industry professionals voting over the 4-week period, taking 36 minutes to complete a vote. The coverage, scope and reach of this process is incredible. A fair and true competition with winners decided by the industry itself.
About the project
Rigby & Rigby were appointed to transform a Private Family Office’s workspace in Oslo, Norway.
The office is located in a mixed-use development in Tjuvholmen (Thief Island), a prestigious area in Oslo, Norway known as a cultural hub within the city celebrating art, architecture and design. The office offers views along the waterfront to the south-west with the Oslofjord providing a scenic backdrop.
Playing with the concept of what could be a traditional office space, Rigby & Rigby’s architectural and interior design studios have designed an office space that reflects the innovative and forward-thinking mindset of its occupiers. The layout champions organic shapes and natural materials using techniques that maximise the spatial, technical and energy efficiency of the office whilst allowing fluidity and privacy.
The well-being of the office staff has been placed at the forefront of the design, utilising both design theory and technological advancement to optimise functionality and comfort including daylight levels and space heating.
Rigby & Rigby’s interior design team have taken inspiration from the waterside location as well as the maritime heritage of the family office through the form and materiality of the furniture, accessories and artwork. The materials selected for the office place an emphasis on natural textures to create a light contemporary atmosphere.
Once completed, Rigby & Rigby hope to have been able to not only push the boundaries of design but have created a highly personalised space that represents the past, present and future of the family office.
