The project, called Kinfolk Gallery created by the Danish studio Norm Architects. Kinfolk gallery and office — a common space where friends and partners come together to showcase their work.

Danish studio has taken influences from both Scandinavian and Japanese design, to create the gallery and workspace. Local studio worked closely with the Kinfolk editor Nathan Williams and communication director Jessica Gray, to develop a design that features a a gallery as well as an office.

The goal was to create a shared magazine’s workspace where employees can not only get together, but also invite friends and partners to share ideas. The palette of wood and plaster in muted colors create an informal, home environment, which is more like a living room than an office.

Like the human well-being, the essence of our work is in balance — between the richness and restraint, between order and complexity.

— said Norm Architects.

Our vision look beyond the boundaries of the field of view. We want to create a space in which one feels good in all respects.

The space is divided into three zones, which enhance privacy zones, as they are located away from the street.

The interior was created in full minimalism, but at the same time paying great attention to detail. Each tone, nuance and the material in the project has been carefully selected to create a harmonious, clear and natural style, which perfectly suits to the Kinfolk slogan — slow living.
