Gardens, transparency, and wood finishes create a warm, inviting work environment. The building is essentially a glass pavilion in a garden on a tight infill site. Strong accent colors express the company’s reputation for bold risk-taking. Finishes are of fine, straight-grained, wire-brushed wood. Occupants enjoy landscaped views, natural lighting, and ventilation through high-performance floor-to-ceiling glass. Transparent walls inside mitigate the building’s high density by allowing garden views and natural light throughout the interior.
