NEW OFFICE DESIGN WITH A FOCUS ON INTERIOR 
ARCHITECTURE FOR THE OSARO SAN FRANCISCO LOCATION

THIS 9,000 SQ FT OFFICE SPACE IS LOCATED ON FOLSOM STREET IN SAN FRANCISCO, AND IS THE HOME TO A GROWING TEAM OF 60 PLUS EMPLOYEES AND AROUND A DOZEN HUGE ROBOT ARMS. WHEN AMANDA FIRST ENTERED THE SPACE, SHE WAS DRAWN TO THE INHERENT INDUSTRIAL QUALITY OF THE INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE THAT UN-APOLOGETICALLY SHOWED IT'S EXPOSED BEAMS, ORANGE METAL CONNECTION POINTS, AND TALL UNINTERRUPTED CONCRETE WALLS. THIS BUILDING HAS HAD A PREVIOUS LIFE, WHICH MADE IT ALL THE MORE INTERESTING TO WORK WITH.THE BEST PART OF WORKING ON AN OFFICE SPACE, IS TO BE ABLE TO DEVELOP AND EXPRESS THE BRAND'S IDENTITY AS BEST AS POSSIBLE. THE OSARO OFFICE, THOUGH VERY LARGE, WAS LOOKED AT HOLISTICALLY WITH THE IDEA OF CONNECTIVITY, IMPROVED CIRCULATION, AND CREATING A COHESIVENESS THROUGH DESIGN. BY USING LARGE SCALE DECALS THROUGH OUT THE OFFICE, WE WERE ABLE TO CREATE A VISUAL LANGUAGE THAT GUIDES YOU AND PROVIDES WAY FINDING DIRECTIONS, AS WELL AS BRANDED MOMENTS THAT PLAY WITH COLOR, WORDS, AND SCALE. THIS ALLOWED US TO WORK WITH AND ELEVATE THE INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE IN A MORE PROFOUND AND INTENTIONAL WAY THAT REPRESENTS OSARO AND WHO THEY ARE AS A GROWING COMPANY.
AS A TEAM, WE FOCUSED ON FAR MORE THEN JUST AESTHETIC IMPROVEMENTS TO THE INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE, BUT SPENT A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME STUDYING THE EXISTING LIGHT LEVELS AND HOW IT EFFECTED THE SPACE AND IT'S USERS, AS WELL AS PROVIDED A STRATEGY THAT IMPROVED ACOUSTIC QUALITIES IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM, MEETING SPACES, AND PRIVATE PHONE BOOTHS. EVERY COLOR, PIECE OF FURNITURE, AND NEW MATERIAL WAS SELECTED INTENTIONALLY, WITH THE CHARACTER OF THE ORIGINAL SPACE NOT ERASED BUT ENHANCED AND RE ENVISIONED.
