The design of this Silicon Valley office conveys the sophistication and seriousness of the venture capital world, while still engaging the firm’s clients in a warm and welcoming space.  Sleek lines and rich wood tones are balanced with concrete columns, exposed ceilings, and warm pops of color. The industrial ceiling structure and concrete columns are left raw in keeping with the more playful startup aesthetic, but also to play on the refinery of the newer materials.  Full height glass in the private offices allows natural light to reach the central spaces, while custom acoustic treatments help to isolate sounds. The glazing also allows the private offices and conference rooms to feel connected to the rest of the space, providing for a spacious, open, and collaborative work environment.  With a design that is both modern and familiar, this office breaks away from the idea of a traditional venture capitalist firm.
