Roy David Studio has just completed the contemporary design for the office of Windward, a maritime data and analytics company based in Tel Aviv, Israel

Windward’s new headquarters is located in the emerging business centre of East Tel Aviv, close to Nokia Stadium. For this project, Roy David Studio chose an industrial style that the architecture firm has emphasised through the use of rough wood, untreated concrete core walls and bold rusted metalwork as main materials. To add warmth to the space, a selection of unique furniture pieces and fittings have been included throughout.

"The space is intelligently designed so that it mimics the environment the Windward company undergoes its activity in. We wanted to shift our design strategy so that the space would not reflect a luxurious yacht design but that of the harsh industrial ports,"explains the architect and founder of Roy David Architecture, Roy David.

The circular layout of the space presented a lot of challenges that the architecture team had to solve in a small time frame of just two months. As part of the overall design process, the company wanted their layout to be open-plan, and this called for a number of unique technical approaches to be designed by the firm in collaboration with the execution company, Shin Angel. From specially calculated open acoustic barriers to a supra-structure of 14 new rusted metal columns, each design element was added so that the company’s brief was met fully.

"It's this contrast between an industrial port atmosphere and high-end tailored made office furniture elements that sets the space apart from any other project we have done. With the use of CNC rough industrial metal elements, custom-designed partitions, furniture and light fixtures, the space is designed in a coherent language dictated by the core values of the Windward company and the architecture studio's vision," concludes David.
