The time has come for the very in vogue “house in a box” concept to infiltrate the workplace. Over in Paris, local architect Estelle Vincent has inserted a trio of multi-purpose wooden “meeting rooms” into the headquarters of marketing firm Ekimetrics, located in a gorgeously ornate building on the Champs-Élysées. In this environment, Vincent’;s geometric, pale timber structures add a laid-back, playful vibe.

Since the office is largely open-plan, these minimalist “shed-like” spaces offer a degree of privacy and flexibility. One angular module, for example, contains 2 workspaces, but also tucks in 24 small boxes that can be taken apart and stacked into tiered seating for larger meetings. Another cube-shaped module has stairs to a “rooftop” gathering space, a wall of cubbies, and one severely inclined slide exit route. It all looks pretty fun:
