  • Ware Malcomb designed the new Airspace Technologies offices as a collaborative space for their team in Carlsbad, California.

    The new Airspace Technologies offices are located within the Atlas at Carlsbad campus, for which Ware Malcomb previously provided architectural design services. Ware Malcomb also designed the common areas for the building concurrently with the Airspace Technologies build-out. This included the first and second floor lobbies, corridors, utilities and restrooms.

    The finished 23,000 square foot interior tenant improvement project for Airspace Technologies, a technology-enabled logistics service provider, gives employees a brand new home in a creative office environment. With three distinct departments, Ware Malcomb designed a neighborhood layout that allows each team to work, collaborate, and focus to fit their respective workplace behaviors. The Design and Engineering departments have several meeting areas which are composed of both enclosed rooms and impromptu stand-up “scrum” areas. In contrast, the Administrative department includes more private offices and phone/focus rooms. The centrally located reception, boardroom, and break area provide a hub for employees to circulate amongst departments while also providing a welcoming environment for visitors.

    The materials used throughout the space reflect the office’s expansive canyon views facing west towards the Pacific Ocean. Varying shades of green in the flooring provide subtle wayfinding and directly relate to Airspace Technologies’ branding. The numerous natural wallcoverings, wood veneers, and playful decorative lighting create unique experiences in each meeting area. Strategically placed acoustical ceiling clouds above the workstations celebrate the exposed structure of the building while addressing concerns of acoustics in an open office environment. The dynamic ceiling treatment at the entry features veneer wraps up the wall and this theme continues along the ceiling with varying angles, recessed lighting, and a built-in banquette seat.
