Solv Headquarters

In 2008, George Hershman had a vision to bring better energy solutions to the world using the power of the sun. Starting as a small division within Swinerton Builders, he grew that renewable energy dream into a company employing more than 800 people. As the division grew, it evolved into three departments and then recently branched out into a standalone organization, SOLV Energy, encompassing design, installation, maintenance, and monitoring of solar energy arrays all over the United States.

PHC Software Headquarters

Designed by Openbook for Taguspark, the PHC Software building is located in Oeiras Valley, close to Lisbon.  With an area of 4,000sqm, the building's facade reveals two distinct layers that explore the balance between the opaque and the transparent. The concrete shell that envelops the inner glass volume adds dynamism to the overall building and highlights the connection between the interior and the exterior. Fernando Guerra/ FG+SG The permeability and curvilinear language of the shell accentuate the play of light and shadow of the building's architectural design and mark its surroundings.  Formal on the outside, informal on the inside. When arriving at the building, one is faced with its formalism materialized in concrete... More

There are planted terraces and a few beehives on the green rooftop, and while none of the firm’s 900 employees has an assigned workstation, they do have a choice of some 2,400 different seats.

Slack Headquarters San Francisco

When Slack asked O+A to create its new multi-floor headquarters in San Francisco one design story presented itself immediately. Slack’s CEO Stewart Butterfield is an outdoorsman, a hiker who goes off grid every year and recharges in the various types of wilderness—desert, mountains, forest—that make up the Pacific Crest Trail. Because that trail forms a bridge between two of Slack’s offices in Vancouver and San Francisco it seemed a thematic link too rich to pass up. O+A’s concept was to create a floor-byfloor evocation of those landscapes—in effect to turn a trip up the elevator into a virtual trip from Baja to the Pacific Northwest. The idea was to suggest not just a variety of topographical and botanic... More
