The exposed brick and concrete of the original loft building are complemented by natural design elements. White-washed wood, green walls, vibrant visuals and geometric elements made from authentic, sustainable materials create the laid-back, coastal ambiance.

The workplace promotes communication and teamwork and is connected by a “boardwalk” that serves as the main circulation path through the space. A central two-story atrium features a cafe and a large social stair used for gatherings and presentations by influencers, brand partners, and clients.

The resulting design is a modern, California inspired “lifestyle office” that facilitates an emotional connection to the company’s brand pillars: health and wellness, fitness, and natural beauty.
