Something old, something new
Sustainability, high-tech amenities, and old-world elegance comfortably co-exist in this office renovation for a 40-person firm. Leather chairs and a vertical chess board recall a gentler time. Exposed steel columns ground the space. A walnut conference table–constructed by a Berkeley craftsman from a street tree in Chico removed for safety
reasons–brings nature downtown. And behind it all are the best sustainability practices and the latest in high-tech: 100% high-efficiency dimmable LED lighting, reused materials (most collected from within 500 miles of San Francisco), telephony, and audio/visual that is automated and controlled by the Savant platform via an iPad.
