Rapt Studio completed the office design for a confidential client located in San Francisco, California.
Designed nearly two decades before, their existing space had remained static while work practices and technology had evolved more than they had in the previous century. Their space didn’t reflect the modern operations of their people. Associates would come into the office looking for a quiet place to do heads-down work or take a phone call, only to leave frustrated by the lack of available private space. Instead of the office, they were using coffee shops to complete their focus work.
The new office was designed to address the way the organization actually functions: a Monday to Thursday configuration focused around clients and teams, with a Friday that’s all about employees. Simple solutions to some of their biggest workplace predicaments are integral to the space: ample room for private phone calls, dedicated but private areas for teams to work together, and two large multi-use spaces—one that’s available for client meetings and entertainment and then other that’s reserved for employee meetings, training, and socializing. For this second area, the selected lamps are eight U-light in rust brown finish.
