The design of the floor celebrates the story of Salt, one of San Francisco’s largest industries since 1854. From the past, present and future of the South Bay landscape, the design draws on the history and characteristics of the area and from the confluence of nature and industry. The ceiling elements define the main circulation throughout the floor and reference the shapes of the salt ponds in the San Francisco Bay. The rustic beauty of Drawbridge, CA, a nearby ghost town, and the surrounding salt marshes are reflected in the colors and materiality of the reception area. The glass wall at the entry to the new fitness center depicts a historical map of the Bay. The feature wall of the Tech-Talk corridor, which connects the reception area and the cafe, is an abstract representation of the Bay through history as its materiality transitions from planting to wood to metal.
