Internationally recognized design firms SHoP Architects and Studio O+A have been selected to create Uber’s new headquarters in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. At a time when many tech companies are creating campuses far from city centers, Uber has made a commitment in its new home to support the continued vitality of the urban environment and to help complete a thriving mixed‐use neighborhood. The 423,000-square-foot project in two adjoining structures will be developed on vacant lots and deliver a rarity in San Francisco: an office building designed specifically for the company that will occupy it. The architecture will be open and environmentally responsible. An eleven‐story tower at 1455 Third Street and a six‐story structure at 1515 Third Street will help transform this transit‐rich intersection into a dynamic, pedestrian‐friendly neighborhood. Along Third Street, small‐scale, new retail will be incorporated into the ground floors of each building. The project includes streetscape improvements and public amenities on Pierpoint Lane, and an intersecting pedestrian walkway. A small city park on Pierpoint will be completely refurbished to contemporary standards for active use and will include a purpose‐built daycare center. A feature known as the Commons—a network of circulation and gathering spaces—negotiates the human scale with the urban scale, bringing the life of the building into contact with the life of the streets. The multi‐story Commons will front both buildings on Third Street, creating a kinetic experience that SHoP principal Chris Sharples and O+A principal Denise Cherry liken to the experience of San Francisco itself. SHoP is designing Uber’s new global headquarters in San Francisco in partnership with interior design firm Assembly. At a time when many tech companies are creating campuses far from city centers, Uber has made a commitment in its new home to support the continued vitality of the urban environment. The project’s goal is to bring this developing stretch of the Mission Bay neighborhood into step with the successful, human-scaled urban environments for which San Francisco is so famous. 这个目标的关键是两个建筑物的“内外”设计。423,000平方英尺的项目包括一个在1455年的第三街的一座11层塔，在1515个第三街六层结构，一个几乎完全透明的可操作门面。这些相邻的建筑物将是将这种被忽视的宽度的新建筑转变为动态，行人友好的邻域的催化剂。 沿着第三街，深层挫折创造了一个慷慨，部分着色的公共广场，旨在支持和容纳相邻的光轨站的活动增加的活动。该项目还包括Pierpoint Lane的街景改进和公共设施，交叉的行人方式。称为公共的一个特征 - 一种突击网络的循环和聚集空间 - 将使建筑物的生活与街道的生命接触，并允许生活城市的观点作为创造性工作的持续灵感在里面的地方。 This new workplace, Uber's first ground-up building, also marks a departure from the growing trend of an entirely open plan office. Instead, work stations are arranged in a series of smaller neighborhoods, each with access to shared support and collaborative work zones. Defined by their distinct palettes and elevated materiality, these neighborhoods echo the rich mix of lifestyles essential to the health of every urban environment—and every large company.
