LOS ANGELES (April 15, 2019) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm based in Southern California, today announced that construction is complete on the new Soylent corporate headquarters located within the At Mateo campus in the Los Angeles Arts District. Ware Malcomb provided interior architectural and design services for the project.
Soylent, a pioneer in food technology, relocated from its previous LA location to accommodate the company’s rapid growth. Located on the third floor of Building 2 in the At Mateo campus, Soylent’s new corporate headquarters design is focused on collaboration. The space features open offices, breakout rooms, sample room, game area and a variety of lounge spaces with tiered seating for meetings. A circulation path runs around the entire office area, connecting the five “neighborhoods” or departments within the company. Private offices are located around the perimeter of the space, with 10-foot high glass walls allowing daylight to reach the interior. The black and white color palette reflects the foundation of the company’s product branding, and allows for the brand to advance as the company grows. Operable windows and roll-up doors let in fresh air and provide access to the exterior areas, including a rooftop patio for employees to enjoy.
The new headquarters is also home to the Soylent Innovation Lab, a coworking space designed to attract like-minded, innovative technology companies to the Arts District.
“This new headquarters provides an engaging atmosphere for Soylent employees that truly embodies the company’s innovative and collaborative corporate culture,” said Radwan Madani, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Los Angeles office. “It has been gratifying for our firm to have the opportunity to work on so many exciting projects — like this one for Soylent — in the burgeoning Arts District of downtown Los Angeles.”
“Ware Malcomb was a phenomenal partner in designing an incredible space that allows both our Soylent team and our Soylent Innovation Lab members to build culture and synergy that are so important for growing our businesses,” said Bryan Crowley, Soylent CEO. “We started with two of our Soylent core values, flexibility and collaboration, as inspiration and Ware Malcomb delivered a space that inspires our teams each and every day.”
The General Contractor for the Soylent project was HBC.
