Flexible spaces fit a software firm’s social disposition.

Champion of network performance and IT security, SolarWinds soared into new offices on the 21st floor of 535 Mission Street in San Francisco. The firm needed a design for an interior build-out that would rapidly attract new employees, keep up with a fast pace of growth, and also support a strong social culture. The new 9,870 sf office is a landscape of collaboration, providing a variety of places to work while maintaining a cohesive vernacular. Flexible sit-stand workstations are supplemented by enclosed meeting rooms that can accommodate anywhere from two to twenty. Coffee and food are social touchpoints at Solarwinds, so the workspace flows seamlessly into a breakroom with views to the Bay Bridge beyond.
