Gensler Newport Beach

Newport Beach, California

Gensler’s Newport Beach office fuses elements of the modern beach house and the Pacific outdoors to provide a rich variety of work settings, with a residential feel. Based on Gensler’s extensive workplace research, the daylight-filled office incorporates all four work modes—focus, collaboration, learning and socialization—to create an energetic, next-generation workspace. A design innovation lab, circular resource library, public gallery and café and informal meeting spaces foster inspiration and collaboration. Seeking LEED Platinum certification, the office incorporates energy and water savings, encouraging a culture of environmental awareness and wellbeing, while visibly demonstrating that creative spaces are possible—and valuable—within a high-rise office building.
