To celebrate the 1923 brick building’s natural, industrial character Blitz designed a comfortable work/meet environment that is elevated and approachable. Timber ceilings and exposed brick walls are complemented by a lush finish palette and lots of greenery, tying together a selection of reused furniture, new pieces and a delightful San Francisco-centric art collection.
A key strategy was to create openness and flow while balancing this Venture Capital firm’s privacy and security. The east side is hospitality forward, welcoming staff as well as visitors. A large open area including a well appointed kitchen can be arranged to host a variety of events including all-hands meetings, education and training seminars, and of course celebrations – large and small. Additional workstations, conference rooms, phone rooms and a large formal board room gives scalable options for nearly any kind of activity. Adjustable fabric screens add separation and privacy when needed.
On the west side an open office area with traditional workstations is set-up for team members who prefer the quiet. Flooded with natural light from the operable windows, the space is easily reconfigured for changing density as required.
