Microsoft San Francisco

Blitz designed Microsoft’s San Francisco office as a showcase for discovery, blending the tech firm’s workspace with a customer-facing technology center.

One Workplace

Central to the headquarters and showroom of One Workplace, a Silicon Valley-based furniture dealer, is the form of stacked C-shaped structures representing “collaboration” and “creativity.”

Marqeta

Monochrome breakout spaces at Marqeta’s Oakland headquarters, which provide zones for collaboration throughout the office, were inspired by boutique hotels.

Malwarebytes

Tucked beneath Malwarebytes’ main staircase is a “secret” bar that is a moment of delight and surprise within the 75,000-square-foot office.

Publicis Groupe

For the San Francisco offices of Publicis Groupe—the third-largest communications group in the world—Blitz incorporated colorful rainbow graphics, gender-neutral lavatories, and mothers’ rooms to uphold the agency’s commitment to inclusivity.
