Before being renovated, the building in Antwerp, built in the 1950s, was a 400-meter school. However, because it was unused for a long time, this building was purchased by Studio Job and converted into its office that accommodated the design studio, apartments, and galleries.

The eclectic design is particularly pronounced in this volume of unfinished concrete reflecting Studio Job's quirky yet classy works. An eclectic style on all sides of the space represents Studio Job's 20-year journey in practice.
(Chairs, tables, and lamps are the work of Studio Job)
This 400-square-meter space is divided into several space programs that become the center of staff activities. In the central area, it is arranged as a living room and a long gallery to display the work of Studio Job.

At the end of the floor plan, Studio Job equips its office facilities with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom. As a place to rest, this bedroom is deliberately designed with a 'fun and creepy' ethos to balance the creative thinking process of the staff. In this bedroom, a bright purple bed, a striking yellow bench, and a black wall with a shark pattern have been arranged. As for the ensuite bathroom, Studio Job lined the walls and floor in red, complete with gold rollmop bath and nipple-like Tit lamps on the studio.

The old building structure and eccentric design have made this office so unique but trying to facilitate users with the presence of functional spaces. The programming of such a neat plan makes the Studio Job office feel comfortable to work even for a long time.
