Confidential Technology Company
San Francisco, California
Square Footage: 150,000
Drawing on this growing technology company’s core principles—to be friendly, motivational, clear, and fun—Perkins+Will has sought to link the new workspace, in aesthetics and usability, to its counterparts in downtown San Francisco. Given the continually evolving arrangements for staff deployment and a rapidly growing headcount, none of the nine floors is permanently dedicated to a specific team. Fitness-minded employees hold meetings in walking conference rooms. Flexible workspace components ensure that the ratio of workstations to conference rooms remains constant. Every space is maximally utilized, with most walls seen as not as dividers but as opportunities to collaborate. Sustainable features include carpeting tiles made of reclaimed nylon fishing nets, and wooden tiles of reclaimed teak.
