University High School Business Office
Location: San Francisco, CA Completed: 2015
This project is an example of leveraging a few simple design gestures for maximum effect with a very limited budget. The existing 2,000 sf space was a dated labyrinth of dark offices with little access to natural light.
The proposed design organizes five individual offices and a conference room around a central common light filled work area. Existing walls were reused to the greatest extent possible while optimizing available natural light. The central common space is highlighted by a sculptural screen wall that celebrates the school’s trademark crimson red color scheme. [Arleo Architects Inc. with Studiobondy Architecture]
