| INTERIOR DESIGN | Anton DevCo ARCHITECT: RMW ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS / INTERIOR DESIGNER: RMW ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS / FURNISHING COMPANY: KBM HOGUE / GENERAL CONTRACTOR: MARKET ONE BUILDERS Expanding from its Bay Area origins and into the Sacramento market, Anton DevCo opened its Sacramento location in RMW’s Ice Blocks in 2018. Though a relatively small space at about 4,500 square feet, what Anton lacks in space it makes up for in location. “Being in the Ice Blocks, right on R Street downtown, it’s in the central hub of everything, so everybody has access to walk to restaurants, coffee houses,” says designer Kevin Morgan of RMW. To maximize its limited square footage, Anton created flexible, collaborative work spac- es with bar-height tables and an open break room that is surrounded by individual work areas along the windows to provide natural light. The reception space integrates Anton’s branding with signage and accents of soft green in the carpet. The otherwise clean, modern design and furniture is complemented by the industrial envelope of the building, including natural materials and an exposed ceiling, wood beams and columns, and concrete floors. “We kept it pretty neutral and as a backdrop to use the space to represent some of Anton’s projects, which they’ve displayed in their conference rooms and so forth.” Ultimately, the timber-framed office functions “like a museum,” he says. n April 2019 | 93
