  • Content sharing service Pinterest has recently moved into a new office designed and executed in collaboration between First Office, All of the Above, and Schwartz and Architecture. We have seen a some shots of Pinterest’s old office – definitely worth taking a look at to see the difference.

    Schwartz and Architecture explains of the new office:

    SaA’s work as executive architect for this 45,000 sq ft tenant improvement corresponded with Pinterest’s rapid expansion, including the continued evolution of the company’s ethos and character. In many ways, the building was seen by the client as a blank architectural canvas to be curated by the employees, much as their web presence supports the gathering and organization of images into a virtual pin board.

    Through a series of Make-A-Thons, the Pinterest folks moved in and hacked the space, immediately making it their own. SaA worked with an initial schematic design proposal from project designer All of the Above / First Office, adding isolated components to the design as the company’s needs developed through construction. For us, the project showcases our collaborative spirit with our clients; one which fosters spaces aligned with their unique visions.
