SK Telecom is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. Their presence in Silicon Valley is growing, as they continue to invest in growing their market presence, and developing a technology incubator.
The brief for this project was to create a new North American headquarters, with space for SK Telecom employees; space for the incubator, with spaces for each incupated startup; and a large open space for entertaining and collaboration.
Our solution created distinct zones for each major function, and combined traditional office interiors with polished concrete and open-to-structure ceiling configurations. Plywood wall panels bring warmth into the space, and angled walls at the incubator create opportunities for informal discussions.
The collaboration space has been very successful as a venue for high profile Silicon Valley tech. events, providing a warm and expansive space that encourages visitors to linger and talk.
