Three floors.
Multiple brands.
One harmonious workplace.

For the San Francisco offices of Publicis Groupe, Blitz employed a new workplace design approach to create a space that promotes a culture of connection, inclusivity, and agility.

The offices were designed with the aim to co-locate and consolidate Publicis Groupe’s national and international brands in its San Francisco office. The result is a dynamic and energetic workspace that reflects the Groupe’s mantra, the Power of One, which served as the key driver for the decision to move all brand agencies under one roof.

The energy and socialization of our office has increased since coming into this space and has absolutely been a positive influence on our staff. There is a renewed sense of pride in the workplace—weʼre actually starting to see more and more people come into the office rather than working from the home or somewhere else.

Blitz put a lot of their personal energy and passion into their design. They were absolutely committed to providing us with a world-class workplace. Everything was carefully curated on their part from a workplace design strategy. The firm ensured the spaces were well appointed, that the clusters of offices and conference rooms were appropriately distributed, and that moments were provided where employees can step away and find moments of sanity. Blitz has done a fantastic job in creating a beacon of an aspirational workspace. We have a presence in San Francisco that can compete with the larger technology companies from a pride-of-workplace perspective.

Throughout the office, immersive, playful experiences encourage discoveries and drive movement across and between the three floors.

A window-lined pantry sparkles with gold wall tiles and decorative pendant fixtures set against a black-and-white boldly patterned floor. Ever-important cold-brew coffee, along with wine and beer at a speakeasy-style bar, is available on tap—a specific client request. One floor features a lounge area with special hanging “nest” chairs, as well as an IT bar with timeline display of vintage Mac computers. On another floor, a colorful collaboration zone offers flexible seating arrangements with small square poufs that may be stored in open shelves when not in use. Gender- neutral lavatories, mothers’ rooms, and colorful rainbow graphics adorning the glass walls of common corridors uphold Publicis Groupe’s commitment to inclusivity.

Expanding upon the principles of activity- based workplace design, Blitz provided agile spaces for teams and individuals, while acknowledging the needs of a new mobile workforce.

Diverse workstations empower team members to be more effective and engaged than at a traditional assigned desk. Flexible spaces, both open and enclosed, seamlessly integrate access to data, AV, and video conferencing to support a variety of activities throughout the day and encourage cross-pollination among brands.

Bring harmony into your space. ​
