Designer Phillipe Malouin of Post-Office transformed what was once a doctor’s office into online design magazine Dezeen’s North London headquarters, including a new watch store to complement an online store. With details including reclaimed Victorian windows, floor-to-ceiling gray curtains (hiding doors to the kitchen, bathroom and storage), and an abundance of green plants, it would not take much to persuade us Remodelista and Gardenista editors to move in.
Since this post was written, Dezeen has moved to Colville Estate on 8 Orsman Road, London. Regardless, we can still dream.

Above: For his window collage, Malouin bought most of the Victorian windows on eBay; a great deal of research was required to find windows the right size.
