One would never guess that inside an old, worn-down building on Adelaide Street, you would find a bright and beautiful office like this. Earlier this year, Wolfe Integrated Design took up residence on the third floor, and they reinvented the space into a work of vintage art.
Wolfe Integrated Design is a full service interior design studio, and their office is also a co-working space that is shared by like-minded creatives and entrepreneurs. We spoke with Jessica Helps, founder of Wolfe ID, to get the views and vibes of their office.
Their 1,500 square-foot space features a communal kitchen, a lounge space, a private bathroom, a communal desk space area, private offices, and a rad fire escape hangout space to boot. The office has several large windows, allowing natural light to stream in.
The loft space itself provides a ton of character, with its exposed brick wall, original factory windows, Douglas Fir support columns and hardwood floors. An industrial West Coast vibe was created by adding a barn board, slate tile, canvas curtains and tropical plants.
The office also features white-finished furniture and light woods to keep the atmosphere light and airy, and is accented with antiques like the ornate wall mirror and the vintage architect’s shelving unit.
The office culture is relaxed and positive, and everyone is friendly towards one another. Pets and children are allowed, which makes the space even more lively. As soon as you step through the door, you’re given an enthusiastic greeting by Frankie Knuckles, office mascot and security dog. The motto for the co-working space is “Good vibes only,” and it’s a belief they strive to uphold every day.
