LPA Inc. has designed the new coworking community offices of The Vine located in Irvine, California. The remodel of the Irvine Company Research and Development Building at University Research Park is an attempt to change the way in which Corporate America works and interacts. The bright open environment provides an optimistic and energetic setting for the tenants that inhabit this re-imagined space. Originally built almost 20 years ago this particular building was one of many almost generic multi and single tenant buildings designed to appeal to the growing demand for corporate space.
The new vision reflects the creation of specific environments for the unique mix of tenants that currently inhabit the marketplace. The lobby and common area spaces were expanded and now become social and work spaces shared by the wide mix of tenants. Natural daylight, organic materials, glass and color all add to the vibrant interior spaces. While the spaces are designed to reflect a fresh modern aesthetic, they also incorporate a timeless approach to design which strongly relates to the original architecture of the building as well as the changing marketplace.
