Edelman San Francisco

San Francisco, California

To meet this global PR agency’s goal of transforming a traditional Class A office into a creative space that expresses an entrepreneurial vibe, Gensler created a cost-effective, kinetic environment with the feel of a test lab. Raw and edgy, the space is infinitely reconfigurable. Adaptable collaboration settings and flexible elements enable employees to test out the space and optimize work modes. The Gensler design team embraced the concept of “rough luxe.” Hospitality-inspired amenities, including a pub-like lounge and a hotel-style lobby are played off against unfinished elements – concrete floors, exposed cielings, and an eclectic array of furniture, including reclaimed bleachers – to create a loft environment in a downtown highrise.
