Gensler has designed a new office space for Shutterfly located in Santa Clara, California.
As a company growing through acquisition, Shutterfly Inc. recognized the importance of creating a sense of common purpose and community across diverse product line teams. So when they moved several business groups to Santa Clara, CA from their existing headquarters and approached Gensler to design their new space, we seized the opportunity to connect employees to the emotional side of the product offering. Working within a very limited budget, the team focused on creating big moves with cost-effective digital wallcoverings and cut vinyl, developing a bold, whimsical graphic vocabulary to celebrate storytelling and bring the brand to life. The editorial approach and resulting space captures the emotion at the core of all the brands: celebrating and sharing life’s moments, big and small.
Gensler upgraded their office through the use of stylish furniture systems, demountable walls, and bold environmental graphics. The reconfiguration opened up the space and allowed daylight to permeate the entire space. Additional wall surfaces were mounted throughout the office to provide a greater opportunity for teams collaborate on the fly and showcase current work.
