Nicola Spinetto Architecte + Stephane Raza : West Forever

The architect Nicola Spinetto landscape offices of West Forever in Strasbourg thanks to a sober the raw finishes that reflect the spirit "roots" of the company, combining the world of travel and motorcycles.

West Forever, a travel agency that organizes trips around the world on a Harley Davidson, settles in the Docks district in Strasbourg, on a large tray delivered crude. Both work space and customer reception, offices comprise an open spaces for 16 stations, two private offices, a meeting room, a storage room, a bathroom with shower, kitchen and dining area. The company requires a significant linear storage for its catalogs.

The project offers targeted interventions. The sobriety of the furnishings reveals the strong presence of structural elements: walls and poles are left in the rough, with a workshop image. The architects desired partition transparent to keep the perception of the volume as a whole. A simple white paint went on the walls and ceilings, leaving networks exposed in an industrial spirit, and a transparent resin is implemented on the concrete screed floor.

The furniture space structure and functions, and is part of the rigorous constructive frame 4m. The wooden furniture create an opaque, solid base and divides the space into two in height. The wood has more or less rustic finishes of panels: OSB, medium, plywood, melamine. Crude steel locksmith workshop reinforces the atmosphere, while wood panels adorn the local blind concealing their doors. At the entrance, a large full-length mirror effect creates a sham disorder and visual perception of space.
