Douglas Elliman Real Estate Office

Sire Design as Architects

For Douglas Elliman’s first office space in South Beach, Sire Design developed an industrial-design-meets-modern-minimalism aesthetic, creating an overall feel that is referential to the building’s Scandinavian-inspired exteriors.

 

Working to overcome the challenges of the building’s exposed ductwork that interfered with lighting in the space, Sire Design chose to embrace the ductwork and incorporate it as part of the design. The resulting open-air exposed ceiling supports a modern coastal atmosphere, perfect for the ocean-front office. Building on this feeling of exposed materiality, the Sire Design team also chose to incorporate the first column built on the floor into the design, leaving the original writing and calculations from the engineering team still visible.

 

Using organic inspired materials and a color palette informed by Scandinavian design, the interior space incorporates black and white features, custom smoked-oak millwork by Gam Woodwork, polished concrete floors, glass partitions between offices, and shelves of white matte lacquer.

 

As the first interior designer ever hired to design a Douglas Elliman office, Sire Design worked closely with the clients to create an office space with a residential aesthetic. In addition to the workspaces, the finished project includes a TV area that achieves a living-room feel without a typical living-room look and a kitchenette that doubles as storage and bar space, with a functional sink that is barely noticeable. Working inside a long, narrow space, the team had to be creative with incorporating storage into the kitchenette and TV millwork, in addition to more unexpected locations such as behind the column in the office.

 

Material used:

  1. Custom smoked-oak millwork by Gam Woodwork 
  2. Polished concrete floors
  3. Glass partitions
  4. Shelves of white matte lacquer
