In establishing a new west coast innovation hub in the Stanford Research Park, the two-story Client Center was envisioned to bring the VIP private banking customer experience adjacent to the employees of the global financial technology company.  Designed to be equally welcoming for individuals and large groups, the visitor’s experience is transformed from a building lobby inspired by technology to an intimate high-end living space with rich and sophisticated material palette.  Every element, from biophilic to pottery on the integrated wall shelves, are carefully curated to reflect the clientele’s expectation of financial standard, innovation, and trust. 

The project is strategically programmed to be highly adaptable within a small footprint.  At the lobby floor, sliding corner glass walls can be closed for private conversations, or opened for entertainment to an integrated beverage wall and counter height island.  Meeting rooms are conveniently tucked away to offer more opportunities for discreet discussions.  Behind an integrated bench and planter, a staircase brings visitors to the second-floor client lounge and boardroom.  This space is designed to be awe-inspiring.  A board room tops off the experience.  The room includes retractable glass walls that can be opened to the lounge at one side, and a full-height glass wall overlooking the double height building lobby at the opposite side. 

The Client Center for the global financial technology company is truly a destination within the Stanford Research Park.
