Office building makeover attracts Silicon Valley clients

An aging, three-story, 1970s-era office building was transformed into a competitive office complex, targeting the high-tech Silicon Valley market.

The most striking feature is a new two-story, floor-to-ceiling glass lobby—a reconfiguration of the old façade. An outdoor courtyard was added, taking advantage of a grove of mature trees, which were originally viewed as a hindrance. A rooftop deck and fire pit are designed for collaboration, as well as relaxation.

LPA also renovated the interiors, creating direct indoor-outdoor links. Gathering zones were created throughout the building. Furniture pods line the hallways next to the windows, creating private, mobile alternative work spaces and re-enforcing the link to nature. The new design also includes shared, glass-enclosed conference rooms and an elaborate kitchen and dining area—all catering to the needs and interests of the modern workforce.

The highly anticipated transformation resulted in an interested tenant pre-leasing the entire building before the renovation completed.
