Seeking a more forward-looking design direction while respecting its Wall Street roots, Piper Jaffray’s San Francisco office was designed to reflect a modern aesthetic, improved functionality, and greater connection to the company’s client base. At the heart of the planning concept are daylight and views. Office fronts with clerestory windows and glass demising partitions bring light to interior locations on the floor. In shared offices, perimeter work-walls flank casual meeting spaces at the center.
Glass pivot boardroom doors expand the lobby for larger events and entertaining. An exposed ceiling defines the volume between open and closed office environments and is a nod to the loft-like offices of the firm’s technology clients. The new environment provides highly collaborative, multi-functional spaces while conforming to the required lines of business separation. With more open and light-filled spaces, office life at Piper Jaffray now becomes transparent.
