Brick and Mortar Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm focused on emerging companies developing innovative software and hardware solutions for the industries of architecture, engineering, construction, and facilities management. Located on a cozy, tree-lined street corner across from the South Park playground, the Brick and Mortar office embraces the local neighborhood context and engages with the street-front.

Blitz was tasked with creating a clean and minimal look while conquering the challenge of maximizing the intimate space to fit a conference room, coffee bar, work stations and reception area. Blitz optimized the office floorplan by using vertical storage along workstations, between the profiles of the building’s exterior columns, and in the coffee break area in order to minimize the need for stand alone or bulky storage solutions.

Authentic materials of stone, herringbone marble tile, concrete floors, and steel at the reception desk create a layered and textural materiality that brings warmth and depth to the space. - Design Blitz
