    Its good, my only critique would be that its a little dark in places (mainly the shelves) perhaps turn up the ambience or add another area light as fill give a brighter feel.

    Are you using radiosity it looks as though its off now but that would also add some aditional fill if you increase the intensity a bit more.

    Check out these two projects designed by a friend of mine.

    A lot of CNC milling of MDF and recycled wood involved, but similar reliance on texture/material and black or white that your own design is tending towards.

    I find your logo too dominant for such a small space at the moment. I would try to leave some more bare floor and wall surfaces. The front desk also seems a little massive IMO.

    Agree,

    Too much clutter, & when its full of equipment, computers, paper work & other stuff, its going to look very small. I’d be inclined to have one very large cupboard covering one entire wall where you can hide everything. Very useful in emergencies....... when a client appears with short notice!

    I like the render..... But from a real life situation there will be a lot of stuff. I wouldn’t spent too much of furniture, one can do a lot by being creative, & it will look a lot better for it. For architectural work get a Dell 30” or similar screen, it will be far more worthwhile than an expensive cupboard.

    It might be useful to use a pale grey to get a neutral colour balance in the room for when you are choosing colours for a new project. There is nothing worse than trying to fine tune a colour & you don’t have a neutral colour space to work with. The floor you can always cover quickly, but its more difficult with the walls.

    Thanks JonW

    I made some radical changes. I think this new version would me more functional for this king of job, and spend less during the renovation.

    Yes sound good,

    The key is to only spend money on things that you have no choice. & also have flexible furnishings.

    You will probably find that once you have worked in the space for a while that you will find a better arrangement. I work from roughly a 5 x 3 metre space, I’m surprised how many times I have rearranged it, for the better!

    I also picked up 3 old school desks. Not quite my taste but bearable, but they cost nothing & are solid as a rock. One day I'll repaint the legs on the desks but I never seem to get around to it.

    The one comment I always get from architects, You have a clean & tidy office! But they don’t know what's in the cupboard! There is a very fine balance between looking tidy & efficient, & no work, but it is easier to start with a good working environment.
