    When the venture capital (VC) firm ARTIS Ventures moved from their office on Market Street to a new location in the Jackson Square area, they were trading a gritty downtown intersection for a quieter neighborhood steeped in San Francisco history. The brick-and-stone architecture in this once-notorious Barbary Coast district is among the city’s oldest—some of it dating back to the Gold Rush era. Now the home of boutiques, restaurants, antique shops and William Stout Architectural Books, the area offers an upscale variation on the urban energy that prevailed at the Market Street site.

    ARTIS wanted to keep that energy—and the jewel box execution Studio O+A brought to their former office—while offering its clients the hospitality and comfort of a gentler Barbary Coast. It also wanted a clean, gallery-like space for ARTIS’ art-loving CEO Stuart Peterson to display some of his personal collection.
