TURF’s design office and play space in a renovated firehouse

A renovated firehouse originally built in 1896 was the perfect play space for TURF’s team of designers. The new design office centers around an open office and prototyping space that fill the old garage. Break-out rooms, a ping-pong lounge and upstairs apartment (with custom TURF product installations throughout) occupy the rest of the two-story, 4,000 SF space.

“The Firehouse is an expression of the kind of work we want to participate in. It’s custom. It’s adaptive. It’s responsive. It’s a 100-year-old building, and we’re conforming to the constraints of all the things that are associated with making a space successful both acoustically and aesthetically.” — Dustin Headley, TURF
