Farella Braun + Martel, a distinguished Northern California law firm deeply rooted in the Bay Area for 57 years, occupied 125,000 square feet of various office types on 15 floors at the iconic Russ Building in San Francisco’s Financial District. With a changed world post pandemic, they were leaning into a more progressive and naturally collaborative workplace that facilitates a hybrid work model. Furthermore, management wanted to ensure that the new office environment would feel vital and engaging and foster community. With the approach to experiential design, the intent was to weave in their deep history in the bay area into the design of the new workplace. This was done through the thoughtful, abstract application of the Bay Area’s rolling hills which employees and visitors see upon entering each of the elevator lobbies.
