Navigating the Unexpected

Bridging the gap between a traditional financial institution and the anti-establishment, the new headquarters presents a refined edginess.

For an emerging leader in cryptocurrency technology, Blitz designed the 14,800 SF workspace to manifest an offbeat counter-culture in a Class A office world.

LOCATION

san francisco, california
SIZE
14,800 SF
SCOPE
architecture
interior design
furniture design
environmental graphics

Views of San Francisco are ​ juxtaposed with areas of tight focus while zones of open-ended contrast spaces fit for a specific purpose. A spectrum of finishes, from exposed ceiling mechanical to wood paneled walls are highlighted by colorful, adjustable LED light adding warmth and variability.

The room configurations and atmospheres are defined by different shapes, sizes, and finishes reacting to a variety of tastes; including the founder’s faves–purple and blue. Modern, moveable furniture and accessories, as well as a high ratio of enclosed rooms, allow for quick adjustments to accommodate physical distancing.

The break area includes a climbing wall and espresso bar, offering a much-needed respite, and contrast from the functions of a typical office.

Enliven your culture.
