Oracle – Buildings SCA09 & SCA10
Santa Clara, CA
Two new buildings complete a legendary campus and catapult Oracle into the next generation.
Oracle’s Santa Clara campus had been a 95% closed office environment since it was originally owned and occupied by Sun Microsystems in the 1990’s. In 2014, RMW was engaged to add two buildings (9 and 10) to the existing campus, buildings that would introduce the new Oracle Workplace. Designed to convey the same timeless architectural aesthetic as the company’s worldwide headquarters in Redwood Shores, California.
The project entails a heavy lab/chamber use facility 30,861 SF and a separate 3 story office building 115,877 GSF; 109,881 USF to support a new, flexible and more mobile work style. Inside the office building’s mission style envelope, dark metal tones, wood planking, and crisp white serve as the base envelope with fresh warm colored accents. The project team designed the new Santa Clara office building with flexible work environments to accommodate the preferences of its multigenerational talent pool, 70% of which now enjoy open workspaces on with natural light and campus views, while 30% have internal private offices with frosted window facing walls. High exposed ceilings and varying functional landmarks define the workspace that engages and increases interaction. Break rooms anchor each floor with copy rooms, conferencing, and 5,000 SF of electronics labs on the ground floor.
