MetLife SGV Corporate Center Renovation II

Commercial | MetLife SGV Corporate Center Renovation II

In renovating this major Metlife real estate asset, to make it cater to a new generation of tech companies we aimed to rethink the shared public spaces to foster interaction. We proposed architectural devices such as amphitheaters and enlarged stairs that can both connect levels as well as offer seating options that encourage contact and communication. We proposed a variety of casual and built in seating arrangements, new spaces of casual congregation such as interior seating gazebos, artisanal coffee pavilions, game rooms and library lounge, all in an effort to encourage and architecturally facilitate and instigate interactivity.
