Silicon Valley Bank’s phased renovation provides a work environment with a modern feel. The open office concept includes breakout meeting areas, wellness rooms, and a training room, as well as a large conference space with stackable glass wall partitions which allow for private meetings without impeding the office’s open concept. The cafe features booth and banquette seating, providing employees with places for sharing meals and collaborating informally.

High-end finishes include the use of Venetian plastering from the elevator lobby into the reception area, extensive stained polished concrete, and an acoustic pillow panel ceiling covering the open office area. A detailed custom graphics package, millwork, and Rulon wood ceilings also help to bring a warm vibrancy to the space. New and relocated MEP systems were installed, as well as a sound masking system and A/V throughout the space.
