CBRE Headquarters

Los Angeles, California

For the global headquarters of CBRE, Gensler transformed a difficult atrium space on the top two floors of a traditional downtown high-rise into a  dynamic office that showcases a new corporate workplace model. By breaking into the building’s façade, the team repurposed an exterior balcony as usable floor space, creating an indoor sky garden with dramatic views to downtown LA that has become the heart of the office—a hub for co-working, client meetings and socializing. The activity-based design is 100 percent free-address across two floors, with more than 15 different types of individual and collaborative workspaces complete with conferencing, a café, interactive media and local street art.
