Pocket Gems

Taking advantage of two large, existing light courtyards and the exposed structure, this 39,700 sf. commercial interior for a mobile game developer combines a fun and flexible office environment with casual spaces for play, relaxation and work.

  • Type Office
  • Location San Francisco, CA
  • Area 39,700 sf
  • Date 2012

Modular desks are configured in an open office area established around the two central light courtyards and perimeter wall. Instead of a formal reception area, elevator lobbies open to large lounges with casual seating. Walls are painted in bright colors or coated with white-board paint. The carpet, an index of activities programmed above, is a composition of inexpensive, standard carpet tiles developed in our office using parametric software. Two-circuit exposed fluorescent lighting in an asymmetrical diamond grid animates the ceiling between the existing skylights.
