Cooley Godward Kronish LLP

San Francisco, California
January 1st 2005

After 38 years occupying multiple floors of a San Francisco high-rise, this law firm moved to a new building where it could develop a greater sense of community while taking advantage of attractive lease rates. The building’s large, uniquely shaped floor plates surround a central atrium that — after landscaping — became the focal point of the new space, bringing substantial natural light onto all floors. Glass-fronted attorney offices allow light to filter into interior workstations. Practice areas juxtapose the atrium’s verdant views with a clean, crisp workspace incorporating innovative uses of color.
