Autodesk is a company that goes back to my college, the sleepless nights working on Autocad, beautiful memories! But today there is not a day of nostalgia, is a day of architecture, and I made this post to show this new office in San Francisco Autodesk, simply amazing.

Housed in a historic area of San Francisco and a building with an old structure, the office goes beyond the traditional cube, Autodesk requested something that would encourage an atmosphere of collaboration and creativity. The integration of new with old elements show a modern and serious character of Autodesk. Was maximized natural lighting through large windows as well as to enjoy the beautiful view of the city.

O projeto é dos arquitetos HOK Architects.

HOK’s team pursued design choices that enhance and exploit the building’s natural features while reusing and repurposing these same elements. Honoring the historic, landmark building the new design highlights the lofted ceilings, original columns, two-story windows, and the space’s inherent industrial feel. The new design is framed by the original structure: sweeping brick arches, newly polished concrete floors, and ceilings now exposed to structure.
