Index Ventures is a famous highly creative venture capital with offices in London, Geneva and San Francisco. The San Francisco office in SOMA District was designed by Garcia Tamjidi who recently completed also a new office expansion due to the rapid growth of the company.
The San Francisco location was designed by Garcia Tamjidi with a blend of adaptive reuse, daylight maximization, and state-of-the-art technology like smart lighting, low voltage, and real-time room-by-room tracking. By outfitting the office with a cafe and showers, Garcia Tamjidi created a space where international team members could land, zip to the office, refresh, and be ready to hit the ground running.
For a major expansion to the existing offices, Garcia Tamjidi focused on the capture of natural light through the introduction of a series of new skylights.
Public spaces like the entryway, café, and boardroom are arranged in a centripetal pattern around these light pillars.
Elements and materials from the previous project have been seamlessly integrated, creating brand continuity as well as illumination-fueled intervention.
In the vaulted hallway, a sculpture commissioned from Reuben Margolin produces a kinetic visual anchor.
