New Cisco San Francisco Offices
Cisco had to move into a new office space because the old one had become too small.
Their new San Francisco headquarters was designed by Studio O+A. The interior is, as expected from such a big company, very friendly and functional. The headquarter occupies two floors and has waterfront views, with a total surface of 110,000 square feet.
The design created aimed primarily at maximizing daylight and creating a bright and open atmosphere. Another important goal was to provide communal areas where the staff could exchange ideas, brainstorm, interact and communicate. Before coming up with a design for this new space, the team asked for feedback from the staff regarding the things they liked about their old office and from there they created a custom design.
The headquarters has wood-frame pavilions partially enclosed with triangular panels and these serve as meeting spaces. There are also sunken seating areas, a design chosen in order to avoid blocking the light coming through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
