Urbanworks worked with Pinterest once again to manage the design and construction of their second headquarters: a six-story, ground-up building that can house over 900 employees. Expanding their tightly knit urban campus in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood, HQ2 and its predecessor are united in their subtle and clean design. The first two floors open to a double-height lobby, and are filled with a public café, conference center, and a cafeteria that doubles as an all-hands space. The upper floors house the open-plan workspaces, additional conference rooms, and roof deck with dramatic views of San Francisco’s skyline. A cascading staircase serves as the key architectural feature and provides an uninterrupted visual connection between every floor.
