the new headquarters for tech company 23andme. the project is the first interior build-out for 899 west evelyn and creates an expansive new home for a rapidly-growing company that was crammed in an undersized and outdated office space slated for demolition.

the open bench workstations are collected at the perimeter of the floorplates to maximize light and air for staff. they are organized around a core of meeting rooms designed to accommodate the many different ways teams collaborate on projects. the ground floor includes a fitness center and a large cafeteria designed to house company wide functions.

the structural concrete floors were polished and ceilings left exposed and painted white. to balance these hard and cool surfaces, wood was introduced to bring warmth and color at moments of importance.
