adidas style store, Chicago – Illinois

August 29th, 2014

Although one of the leading cities stateside, Chicago lags a little behind New York, Los Angeles and even second-tier hubs such as San Francisco and Miami when it comes to happening retail.

June 24th, 2014

At Yelp we placed a fully-equipped coffee shop on the 8th floor, a break room with window seating on the 5th, and semi-private pods for chess or chatting on the 11th. Each floor’s common areas thus become common to the company at large and not just to those whose workstations occupy that level.

Autodesk Workshop by Lundberg Design, San Francisco – California

June 19th, 2014

We started with a simple palette of materials – steel, reclaimed wood, plywood, and cement board, all of which felt industrial but through detailing we were able to utilize in a more elegant and contemporary expression – creating a distinction and tension between new and old building fabric.

Bun Mee Vietnamese sandwich shop by zero ten design, San Francisco

June 3rd, 2014

Conceptually, the design recalls the long history of the Vietnamese street food scene, where bánh mi is often served curbside amid the hustle and bustle of the urban fabric, and melds that with a more modern and urban street vibe consistent with Market Street’s flurry of street cars, buses, bicycles, and automobiles.

Cisco Meraki offices by O+A, San Francisco – California

December 26th, 2013

O+A’s solution was to create a medley of small gathering spaces within the larger footprint. Sunken seating brings intimacy to horizontal common areas while preserving broad sightlines.
