ASICS North-American HQ Lives and Breathes Active Design

After a successful completion of tenant improvements at the previous ASICS headquarters in 2008, LPA was awarded the company’s new corporate headquarters project. The buildings are leased from The Irvine Company and the new location comprises of two existing buildings in Irvine, California. Consisting of approximately 121,000 square feet of space, the new design allows athletes and employees to train and test their fitness levels in its new Sports Training Center.

The LPA design team focused on the energy of the brand as inspiration from ASICS when it came to conception. “We were really trying to express a very sort of athletic edge to the interiors. A lot of the accent colors that you see are actually based on their product so that we really tried to infuse what they do into the space and how they work,” explained Senior Designer and Principal at LPA, Rick D’Amato.

LPA took two existing structures and created an empowering environment for ASICS employees, partners, buyers and athletes. D’Amato said, “It’s one of those opportunities for LPA where everything just comes together and it just really works. It was a really wonderful process, a fun team and a great client.”
