RareKind x The Masonry
We have worked with Ireland’s leading co-working business Iconic Offices on a number of their buildings and we’re pleased to say that no two jobs have been the same thanks to the amazing range of architectural and interior styles they offer.
For Iconic’s largest building The Masonry in Dublin, we were commissioned to create and produce the branding for both the office space and the cafe as well as building an exclusively Irish Team of artists to produce work large scale artworks and way-finding throughout the 70,000sq and 6 floors.
We also overhauled their 6 story shared office building The Greenway in central Dublin, creating branding for their in-house café and colour coordinated large scale murals, artworks and way-finding throughout the offices.
For Iconic’s Wellness certified workspace The Lennox building we had fun working across a broad range of spaces and surfaces that saw us create floor artwork, external signage onto the building’s façade, beautiful large scale murals onto concrete as well as curating and installing original framed artworks by influential young Irish artists through the building’s 4 floors.
For some of Iconic’s smaller period properties we have curated and installed original framed artworks for communal and meeting room areas.
RareKind x Iconic Offices
In late Summer ’17 we were asked by Joe McGinley and his team to come over to create artworks and way-finding though-out their new 6 story shared office building in St Stephens Sq. central Dublin.
We produced branding for the building named The Greenway along with branding for the Vandal Cafe situated on the ground floor.
Each floor in the building was given it’s own colour way which went though the floor appearing in the artworks. Hand painted way-finding flows though the whole building including the stairwells. We brought the full team as well as Pref who produced a piece in his unique style, 1 word forst floor, 2 words second, 3 words third etc. we also had Irish graffiti artist Omin to join us.
