Murad Skincare Headquarters by Shubin + Donaldson Architects, El Segundo – California

June 13th, 2015 by retail design blog

Award-winning skincare company Murad teamed up with Shubin + Donaldson Architects to create their new corporate headquarters in El Segundo, California.


The clean, modernist design creates a beautiful backdrop to the color-coded branding of the skincare company. The layout of the 41,500 square foot space was based on a cellular concept by creating a central meeting and Spa element surrounded by a walking track and various fitness machines which double as meeting nodes. This in turn created opportunities for employees to practice Murad’s Inclusive Health lifestyle, which integrates topical care, internal care, and emotional care into every day.


The beauty brand’s 3-faceted Inclusive Health philosophy was also represented in custom patterns designed throughout key elements of the project like ceramic tiles, laser cut screens, and an iconic ceiling element. It was important to visually reflect the beauty brand’s DNA not only through the materiality, but also the constructio n process. Murad’s belief in social responsibility was carried through the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and products ranging from FSC certified veneers and recycled metals to zero VOC’s.
