We spend a lot of time on the clock, so it’s only natural that we’d want our workspace to check off certain boxes: plenty of space to collaborate with our (rapidly growing) team, lots of light, a souped-up test kitchen for our food editors to play with new recipes, and an overall lived-in vibe that reflects what goop’s all about. When it came to pulling it all together, our creative director, Britt Pattner, called on the best: RH and their interior design team, Sam Hamilton of MARCH and Matt Bear of Berkeley-based design firm Union Studio to help transform a sparse space (it was a chicken coop in its past life) into something warm and inviting.

Staffers have been known to make casual visits to the test kitchen in hopes of scoring snacks after food editors Thea Baumann and Caitlin O’Malley wrap up. For the MARCH-designed (and Electrolux Grand Cuisine-powered) kitchen, the idea was to create an open space that was beautiful yet totally functional. (Sam even commissioned kitchen tile based on the cement brick, which was handmade in California by Fireclay Tile.) Here, the Electrolux Grand Cuisine Stand Mixer as well as the Fagor slow cooker get lots of play. Also in heavy rotation? The entire Staub line, which Thea says she can’t live without.

An open floor plan is particularly important since we’re still in start-up mode (read: must be within shouting distance of each other at all times). Here, an oversized chalkboard serves as our real-life Pinterest board for whatever we’re working on. (In this case, the launch of goop Edition 02-shiso.)

Unofficially, we refer to this meeting/brainstorm/desk-break nook as the “goop bistro”.
