Nautilus Campus

San Diego, California

Gensler worked to reposition these two two-story campus office and lab buildings, and create a “workstyle center” focused on the concept of healthy living. Enhancing outdoor amenities beyond the typical suburban office-park, the new park incorporates a 3,000-square-foot organic garden that feeds a café, an event lawn and multiple outdoor meeting rooms. To maximize views and natural lighting, exterior glazing was nearly doubled. The new floor plan is more efficient, adding opportunities for open office/labs. Other renovation features include a state-of-the-art conferencing facility, spa-quality showers and subterranean parking. Well before the project’s completion, it was already fully leased to Verenium and the Novartis Research Foundation.
