Medical Devices Technology Company

Irvine, California

This medical devices technology company sought to re-brand the Gensler-designed building it had recently moved into with its own style. With health and wellness as the guiding principle, Gensler designed a workplace inspired by the fusing of outdoors and indoors. An existing warehouse transformed into a central garden offers pathways between departments; and a topography of trees, green walls and grass creates meeting areas and informal work zones right outside the building. The building opens outwards through a glass atrium with a koi pond and seating deck to its side. Overhanging the atrium garden is a mezzanine that provides the space to fit all staff under one roof.
