Workbook: Seeing Clearly in San Francisco

Marmol Radziner's design for the new Oliver Peoples store in San Francisco takes its cues from the city itself. Image Drew Altizer/courtesy Marmol Radziner.

Save for some immutable specifics—how eyeglasses are stored and displayed, how customers try them on and see themselves in them—Ron Radziner, of Marmol Radziner, had the chance to let his creativity range as he and his firm designed the new Oliver Peoples store in San Francisco. As he puts it, “It’s more about how you express the concept of the brand and the feeling.”

Workbook: Bringing Home to Work

Studio O+A's design for Zazzle's headquarters emphasizes multi-functional spaces and unexpected design touches. Photo by Jasper Sanidad/Courtesy Studio O+A.We talk a lot about the new look of offices—open-plan, flooded with natural light, multi-use spaces. Often, though, designers and architects don’t take that idea to the next level, instead creating spaces that still very much retain the old aesthetic that leans toward the institutional and bland. For a recent project by Studio O+A, a San Francisco–based interior design studio, the team pushed the envelope, creating offices for the online firm Zazzle in Redwood City, California, that are lively and inviting.

UCSF Institute for Regenerative Medicine by Rafael Viñoly Architects

Image via Inhabitat

The University of California, San Francisco campus is set on Mount Sutro, west of downtown San Francisco. The location affords a sweeping view of the city, but the campus has had very little room to grow beyond its collection of fifties and sixties towers because of the steep hillside. New York based-architect Rafael Viñoly Architects recently finished the new Institute for Regenerative Medicine. The $123 million building, is a series of split-level floors with terraced grass roofs and solar orientation. Open labs flow into each other, with office and interaction areas located on the circulation route between the labs, allowing for the entire research community in the building to interact. The Institute has been dubbed the Dolby Building by students and faculty.
