Last year we moved into a fantastic new space after spending a year renovating a worn down, multi-tenant space. Today we're happy to share that our building was honored with a 2014 Design Award by the American Architects Institute of Santa Clara County (home to some of the most recognized technology companies in Silicon Valley).
We'd like to thank our architect and congratulate David Fenster and Modulus for an amazing job. After working in the space for the past year, we can attest to David's work as it continues to surpass the test of time! It's an amazing space and we're thankful everyday for the opportunity to work in a building specifically designed around the needs of our business.
Interior Spaces Designed for Designers
After spending many afternoons learning and observing how we worked, Modulus was able to design different spaces for the needs of our team. They spent countless hours going back and forth with us discussing everything from lighting to acoustics. It was incredible. Designing for a bunch of designers isn't the easiest of jobs.
Each room has a specific purpose and it provides our employees opportunity to spread out. Below are a few interior photos.
A Multi-Purpose Space
The design, city approval process and construction took well over a year to finish. By the end of the process, it started to get hard making constant decisions, but the team stayed focused up until the end.
The space has been used in many different ways. In the past year we taught elementary students about design thinking, ran a healthcare hack-a-thon, finished our 7th ZURB Wired, and hosted numerous Soapbox speakers.
Before the Renovation
For those that are interested, we captured some pre-construction and building images in a previous blog post. As you can see, the team did an amazing job turning this old clunker into an amazing space!
