Second Runner Up: The Hub Uses Simple Décor for Open Minds

The goal for The Hub was to create myriad flexible workstations that could serve as timeshares for entrepreneurs looking to "change the world." It didn't require an expensive furniture shipment. Instead, designers brought in loads of fruit boxes, which today serve as stools, desks, ladders, shelves, and an entire ticket office—offering extreme flexibility. Walls were left raw, save for felt lining conference rooms. In-floor heating and cooling lies beneath the raw wood.
