  • Year 2014
  • Location California, San Francisco, United States,
  • Industry Design,
  • Standard Studio has developed a new office design for industrial design firm Ammunition which is located in San Francisco, California.

    Industrial Designer Robert Brunner commissioned Standard to collaborate on the design of the offices of Ammunition, the company behind products for Adobe, Beats by Dre, and Polaroid. The design goals were to create an open–plan office to facilitate and encourage teamwork, and to clearly reflect Ammunition’s brand. Functional features such as custom workstations, discrete “break out” areas for staff interaction and a production and prototype shop, were incorporated into the plan to support Ammunition’s work process. A central conference room uses folding glass partitions to allow visual and physical continuity. A recent update to the design saw the expansion of the kitchen to allow Ammunition’s 50-person team to come together for team lunches and ping-pong. The office is located on the San Francisco waterfront in an historical cable car roundhouse.

    Above all, Ammunition had to be a great place to work. This meant it had to be inspirational as well as functional. As much of the original structure was left as possible, and all other elements were kept minimal, adding bright spots of color where needed.
