Studio Autori Office | Belgrade, Serbia | 2022
[Studio AUTORI]

Last year, our team embarked into an adventure of renovating a 1926 historic apartment located in the city center and transforming it into a spacious architecture studio.
When posed with designing our own office, we wanted it to reflect our team and its daily activities, but most importantly, we wanted to create a space that makes us feel good.

The result is a clean space composed of enlarged elements and furniture pieces, laid-out on a neutral soft background of natural clay walls, highlighted with black details and endless play of ever-changing light that is brought in the space through reflective surfaces. A pair of large-scale pivot mirror doors both connecting and separating entrance, working area and a conference room appear as a key spatial element, offering a fresh new perspective each time they are rotated.

Breaking the sleekness of the whole and as an homage to the buildings lively and rich history, a small model making workshop appears in all its contrast, with original window frames and hardwood floor painted in black.

Once inside the office, the hectic buzz of the city center disappears for a while, and you are free to immerse yourself in exploring the space itself and the way it changes throughout the day.

When it comes to furniture, most of it was designed by our studio and carefully carried out by our collaborators, giving us an opportunity to see these objects come to life and at the same time test our work, by living with and around it.

Somewhere in between studio, modern office and gallery, the space offers a variety of different scenarios to take place within it. We wanted to embrace an idea of blank, almost gallery-like space, which serves as an invitation for projects and activities to come and objects to be filled with throughout time.
