  • Ruskin Design was engaged by a private venture capital firm to create a homelike environment for their offices in Menlo Park, California.

    This purpose-driven VC firm enlisted us to create a refined yet homelike environment in their two-story hybrid workspace in Menlo Park. We worked with the space’s floor-to-ceiling glass walls and generously sized terraces to create fluidity between indoor and outdoor areas using thoughtful and functional furniture selection.

    Warm, natural finishes such as wood and leather create a tonal interplay and harmonize with plant life present throughout the office and in the surrounding outdoor environment. We outfitted the office’s meeting rooms with integrated technology and included acoustic wall treatments for added privacy. Comfortable teak seating invites team members to move their workflow outdoors, or simply to unwind amid the elements and take in the southwest-facing views.

    Equipped with a full kitchen, open downstairs floor plan and large outdoor dining table, this workspace is imbued with a distinctively social ambiance. Team members and visiting partners are welcomed into the space for both work and leisure — to view a presentation, to convene for a meeting or to gather for a home-cooked meal on the terrace.
