- The Office Rw -
The Office Rw is the first co-working space in Rwanda. Founded in October 2012, The Office offers affordable and flexible space for the Start-ups and Freelancers in Kigali.
We were approached to create a peaceful and flexible office space than could accommodate the different types of users, encourage cross-creativity , host private event.

The Challenge was to define space while being evolutive. Our design is flexible, with movable partition walls and offers a peaceful work-environment.
The space feature a triple hinged door, custom made by a Rwandan Metal worker. The door dramatically change the all interior. When close, it defined a professional look with a massive umuvure table. When open, The Office Rw can be turned into an exhibition space or can be used for press conference.
To complete the experience, we have design custom-made benches and day-bed and we have been touring Rwanda to find antique pieces like vintage mortars and locally made pots and European flea-market.
Subtle and local, the interior design for the Office is centred around a clean color and material palettes. Made-in-Rwanda bricks, dark and brigh wood and natural cotton fabrics.
