THE CHALLENGE

Headquartered in Mountain View, Symantec consolidated their existing offices in the north bay into one San Francisco flagship workspace to host clients and accommodate their existing workforce. The workspace had to feature a collaborative space in functional alignment with their offices worldwide, as well as a Customer Briefing Center to market their Cyber Security solutions to their clients.

THE SOLUTION

AP+I developed a design vocabulary that expresses Symantec’s core values of customer-centricity, creativity, agility, accountability and teamwork. A large-scale faceted architectural element spans the Customer Briefing Center corridor between the reception and conference areas, a representation of Symantec’s superhero abilities in Cyber Security. This angular motif continues throughout the workplace in custom wall graphics, carpet patterns, space dividers and specialty lighting, reinforcing their values. Unexpected finishes and oversize dimensional brand icons create high-contrast textures and visuals. The result is an experience that reflects the strong innovation and reliability customers can expect from Symantec and the collaborative nature of its everyday users
