Pentagram Design is an international studio founded on the premise of collaborative interdisciplinary design. The San Francisco office is located in a rehabilitated envelope factory that also includes 27 live work lofts. An exercise in organized chaos, the project features simple industrial elements such as exposed concrete, blued steel and saw tooth north skylights. A new atrium cuts into the existing structure allowing staff to communicate openly and circulate freely among all 3 floors.
