J2 Global is an internet information and services company with multiple brands under its umbrella. As an ever-growing company,the time for a new space that fosters community and inspiration was now. The design goal was to create a culture with their people at the nucleus of that message. In this new space, we were able to create moments where employees could take a break during their busy workday, while still being in the office. Planned neighborhoods, the use of natural materials, and a calm palette with pops of color helped identify areas of collaboration vs. pockets of privacy.
J2 Global, INC
Los Angeles, CA
J2 Global, Inc’s new headquarters are located at the Bloc in DTLA; an up-and-coming hub, which speaks directly to J2’s inclusive business model. J2 wanted a space that was fun and innovative, and really encouraged employees to work together. J2 came to Wolcott looking to create a comfortable space that could act as a second home. This was guided by using a calm palette and enhancing the natural light provided by full-height perimeter windows. Guests are greeted with a sophisticated entry, introduced with rich materials and colors, and a breathtaking 360 view of Los Angeles.
With an elevated reception, great views, and an airy feeling paired with vibrant tones throughout, J2 Global’s headquarters doesn’t feel like a typical internet information company. The finished product is an inviting office space that connects LA-based employees with those who venture from afar.
