Emeryville, CA

This Internet search engine company grew from a staff of 168 to approximately 300 during the four months we took to define the program, design and build its headquarters office facilities. With only a moderate budget, we used painted drywall to create work areas, circulation and enclosed rooms that added up to a varied and interesting spacious office environment.

A large server room, break areas and conference rooms are some of the typical functions included. We also created a playroom intended to be used by employees or their children during off-hours. The breakrooms are all situated near outdoor roof terraces to encourage everyone to access this shared amenity.
