Hungarian architects Zsanett Benedek and Dániel Lakos of Tervhivatal have divided an office in Budapest in the loft of a former textile factory by building boxes.
Called Goldberger, the project is divided into smaller offices and meeting rooms by these plaster-board boxes on steel frames, which are elevated slightly to denote corridors between them.
One smaller box is suspended from the ceiling to form a hanging desk (below).

The boxes are lit from beneath with LEDs and at night the space is used as a club venue.

Captions are provided by the architects.
