  • IDF Studio has designed the new offices of mortgage lending company Blend, located in San Francisco, California.

    Blend is a San Francisco-based tech company developing software and data applications intended to streamline the originating process for mortgage lenders, while offering a better user experience to their borrowers.

    The team at Blend wanted an office design that was clean and fresh yet preserved their industrial Mission office roots. Creating a space that complemented the 360 degree views of downtown began by developing a palette of blues and grey. Then came the interplay of machine-age materials, organic textures, and geometric shapes; a confident and energizing setting for home lending disruption.

    Adding Energy:
    Plants and pops of color throughout function to break up the predominantly grey backdrop. A custom mural at the reception lounge is a play on geo blocks, illustrating the idea that a combination of geometric shapes blended together form a home; a theme found throughout the space.

    Nature’s Home:
    In the reception lounge, a glass and metal coffee table displays examples of homes found in nature.

    Dress to Impress:
    The custom wood and metal boardroom table is modernized with floor to ceiling grey stained wood paneling.
