Gensler’s 24,000 square foot Oakland office is characterized by function and flexibility. Perched on the top floor of a Class A office tower, the space affords a captivating 360-degree panoramic view of the East Bay hills, Downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the San Francisco skyline. Organized into multiple components that support a firm’s unique practice, the core-centric space has sit-stand desks, benching tables and drop-in stations around the perimeter, with conference and small meeting rooms around the core and a large flexible project area on the south end of the floor. Upon entering, visitors and staff are greeted with a large conference room that sits adjacent to the reception area. This room has movable glass doors and warm toned curtains creating layers which open and recede to transform the reception area into a gathering space for social events.
