Commercial Housing | Company Headquarters
Long Beach, CA
The connection to the natural world is a part of humanity. The more high-tech our lives become, the more nature we need. With Oakwood’s new Headquarters in Long Beach we juxtaposed the demands of a high-tech office environment with a continuous connection to the warmth, light and exuberance of nature.
The inspiring 360 degree views and sea-infused interiors allow those who inhabit the space to stay connected with the outdoors throughout their workday. The mix of secluded ‘hibernation’ zones with ocean backdrops, and energetic meeting spaces, provide a multi-layered environment for both collaborative and individual work. This mix of serenity and electricity mimic the energy of the ocean, which can be seen from all views.
Regardless of culture, people gravitate toward nature. Our goal of connecting the employees to the outdoors throughout their day is to vastly improve the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of the entire staff.
