Office+Block was a team effort between Daniel Cartagena and Hannah Wambach explored developing block types that allow for the optimization of the office typology. This was achieved through organization of space along different porosities and the idea of creating different zones that allow for less distraction and visual noise, or complete openings that bridge the connection of interior and exterior.
