  • FENNIE+MEHL Architects designed the new offices of data center company Equinix located in Foster City, California.

    Equinix is the world’s largest IBX data center and colocation provider, with nearly 100 data centers worldwide. Global, secure, state of the art, their brand position is reflected in their confident company culture, and they wanted their new corporate headquarters to reflect that confidence. What’s more, this space was to serve as an executive briefing center, where top clients are wined and dined. F+M introduced an etched glass map of the world—it commands the full height of an entire lobby wall—which showcases all of their data centers and their interconnecting paths. To temper all the high tech with a little high touch, F+M suffused the space with intimate blue light. It’s the perfect space for sipping wine and cementing deals.

    “F+M collaborated with marketing to brand the Equinix Sales Channels, the NOQ, the corporate headquarters and the Customer Briefing Center. Now they are taking us into the next generation of the Equinix branded work environment, again working seamless with our marketing and sales groups to keep us on the leading edge of design.” said Keith D. Taylor, Equinix
