Fivetran Headquarters

Oakland, California

Fivetran’s new Oakland headquarters is an innovative tech workplace for team-building, hybrid collaboration, and connecting with the Oakland community. The new office supports Fivetran’s rich history of company off-sites and community engagement. Flexible conference spaces, team collaboration areas, social spaces, and culinary components are arranged together to create an “on-site off-site” experience, one where Fivetran employees can convene, team-build, and celebrate their culture. Additionally, these spaces are optimized for hosting everything from coding classes for high schoolers to local artist exhibitions.

For the design of open office neighborhoods, a data-driven process, including extensive surveys and focus groups, was employed to make sure these areas aligned with Fivetran’s specific ways of working. This resulted in unique ratios of work postures — dedicated workstations, alternate seating, and short-term workpoints. Color and materiality complete the story as a traditional material palette was reimagined as a dual-axis “finish matrix” for selecting finishes based on location, work modes, and activity level.
