And not a slow Start Up, reaching over 300 employees in no time! Office space was running out and difficult to find in the "uber expensive" real estate market of San Francisco. The client decided that in order to keep everybody in the same building "going below ground" was the best option.  A bare space without windows. The design concept and floor plan includes 5 offices with special security requirements, one classroom, 6 conference rooms, a kitchen and lunchroom and a "hang out" area with lounge chairs and pool table. The challenge was to create a space which is inviting, comfortable and most importantly doesn't feel like a basement.  All on a budget and with the required Silicon Valley "hipness".  And now everybody "above ground" wants to hang out "below ground" :)
