A global public relations and digital media agency, Lewis PR distinguishes itself by focusing on creativity and storytelling as its foundation. For its San Francisco office, the agency had the opportunity to consolidate two locations and align the new office with its client-centric work style. Abandoning traditional workplace models, the design team explored ways to break up the floor plate into neighborhoods with a strong narrative connecting them. The story starts at the main lobby where a living wall and a feature wall surfaced in reclaimed wood denote the loft-like environment visitors are about to enter. Work areas are based in each building corner where the ceiling is exposed to create larger volumes and to maximize downtown view and access to daylight. Modular seating centered between two of the neighborhoods draws inspiration from camp fire settings where employees can gather around and share ideas.
