Squire Patton Boggs
The relocation of Squire's San Francisco office started with a high-level pre-design and visioning process to aid in the building selection. Ultimately, an existing law firm space on five floors was selected. With the goal of LEED Gold certification, the design solution reuses more than 60% of the existing construction. Since most staff are located in workspaces along the exterior, new glazed openings were cut into the corridor walls to bring natural light and views to the interior. Enhanced lighting design and efficient equipment reduce energy consumption. Sustainable materials include FSC-certified eucalyptus, while limestone floors were thoughtfully reused in the reception area.
To support client and community events frequently hosted by the firm, a divisible multi-purpose room offers a scalable solution. Primarily used for training and client seminars, the room’s large sliding doors also allow connection to the adjacent public space for assemblies and events.
Through repurposing of pre-built space and careful modifications and additions, the design team achieved a modern solution that reflects Squire Sanders’ diverse practice and global identity.
