Text description provided by the architects. SYPartners is an innovation company that serves as a partner to CEOs and their executive teams to help solve some of their most complex challenges. A+I Design Corp's task was to provide an open and flexible work environment which would promote collaboration both amongst SYP’s employees as well as with their clients.

Much of the space is devoted to two large “Labs” which utilize numerous digital projectors, wall-length whiteboards, and mobile furniture to create a fluid working area for large presentations and brainstorming. Custom rolling tables with projectable whiteboard surfaces and rolling steel magnetic whiteboards allow maximum flexibility for SYP’s working style.

Humble materials like plywood and laminate are combined with industrial elements like blackened steel or sleeker items like walnut and stainless cabinetry to create an eclectic mix of high and low aesthetic. Mid-century classic furniture is mixed freely with a variety of industrial vintage pieces to further accentuate this comfortable and quirky aesthetic.

Additional collaborative areas can be found throughout the space, including a series of working “pods” on the 9th floor which can be divided from one another by foam core boards mounted in tracks installed in the floor and ceiling. The pods can thus expand or contract, depending on the needs of the client, and can also be screened from view by demountable hanging perforated felt panels.

Technology plays an important role in the company’s work and has been incorporated seamlessly throughout the space, including the variety of chat rooms which range in size from individual to four-person and allow for video conferences with clients and with SYP’s San Francisco office.
