The Studio McGee Office Photo Tour

Come with us as we take you through our new Studio McGee office space!

If you’ve been following along here for a while, you’ll know that we recently moved into a new office…

We quickly outgrew our old one and needed a new spot to house our team! We knew that bringing the team back into the office after working so long at home would be an adjustment, so we wanted this space to feel as inviting, comfortable, collaborative, and homey as possible. So without further adieu, let’s take a tour!  

We’d like to thank our friends at  Italia Granite, Kohler, Lemco, Killowen Construction, and Park City Blinds for helping us bring this space to life! 

"The vision for our office was blending the functionality of a workspace with the feeling of home."

Entry

Jump into the elevator, head up six floors — and you’ll soon land at the Studio McGee office. One of this first things that will catch your eye is the burnished brass sign that immediately welcomes you in. We framed the sign with beautiful built-ins and added Calacatta marble countertops and backsplash. Like a lot of the big, open living spaces in the office — we hung repeated pendants for a friendly look and feel.  The curved reeded desk was a labor of love by Tyler at Killowen Construction, and we couldn’t be happier with how inviting and unique it turned out.

Syd’s Office

Walk into Syd’s office and you’ll see a wide open window highlighting the mountain range. Although Syd didn’t have many requests for his office space, he did want it to feel similar to his office at home — we went with Sherwin Williams Rock Bottom hue to help achieve that same moody vibe. To make the office feel masculine, we did industrial style exposed screws on the built-ins and picture lights above the floating shelves with a thick profile. And as a bonus, we added a Topo Chico fridge to keep his thirst quenched at all times during the work day.

Shea’s Office

Next to Syd’s office (though not through an adjoining door!) sits Shea’s office. It’s the perfect mix of modern and traditional — blending feminine textures with modern shapes.  One of the first details you’ll notice is the wallpaper wrapped throughout. Shea picked this specific wallpaper because although it has a busy pattern, the palette is neutral and a perfect backdrop to build upon.

In all open areas of the office space we went with a polished concrete floor, but in the enclosed areas we used Stanton LVP flooring from Lemco Design. The tone of the flooring is so beautiful and has a great durability for daily traffic in and out of the office spaces.  

Contrasting the open shelving on Syd’s built-in, we went with a painted, closed built-in in Shea’s office. The reeded glass doors and slated ledge are two unique details that really give the space personality and bring it to life. You might notice that Shea’s desk doesn’t have a computer on it, and that’s intentional! She wanted this space to feel like a collaborative area, with her at-home office to be more of a heads down, focusing place.

Design Library

One of the most exciting parts of our office is the design library. Because a design team naturally comes with an endless array of samples (think: tile, fabric, etc.), we knew we needed many areas for storage. Tyler did the full build out of this space, with the end result having a true library feel. The islands throughout allow the team to create flat lays and set out client trays, which is an added bonus. If you love this area as much as we do, we’ll be sharing more in the upcoming weeks — so stay tuned!

Conference Rooms

We wanted the conference rooms in the office to feel different from one another, yet still cohesive. We landed on a formula for painting that helped achieve just that: all open spaces received a light paint hue, medium sized conference rooms were done in plaster, and large conference rooms were fitted with Grasscloth. We love having a plan for designing such a huge space like this one!

Common Spaces

A main goal in designing the office was to have areas for both heads down, individual work, as well as ones for collaboration. The common spaces throughout help do just out — on any busy day you’ll find them filled with breakout meetings and conversations. We filled these spaces with our favorite furniture pieces from McGee & Co. to make them feel both comfortable and inspiring.

When we had our very first office downtown (filled with six employees!) we hung repeating gold pendants from the ceiling. We’ve incorporated this small detail into every office space that we’ve had since, and every time we look up at them we’re reminded of where we started.

We chose thoughtful artwork throughout the office like this piece from High Desert Studio to encourage inspiration and creativity.

Kitchen

To conclude this tour, we’re taking you to the part of the office that hosts everyone’s favorite part of the day: lunch. Before the remodel, the original kitchen space was much smaller, so we removed one of the walls on the side, expanded the kitchen, and created all new cabinetry. The oak island in the center acts as both storage and seating, and the oval detail on the corners takes it to a whole new level of beauty. We worked with Kohler on a brass pull down spring faucet in Vibrant Brushed Moderne Brass. The cabinet pulls are from Signature Hardware in Matte Black, and we went with soapstone countertops from Italia Granite with a white textured square backsplash. Next to the kitchen is a sitting area where our team can gather, chat, and eat lunch together.
