CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. They are free, monthly events feature a short talk and breakfast!
And last month we got to listen to Joe Talbot is filmmaker and a fifth-generation San Franciscan whose emerging body of work has been recognized by beloved auteur Guy Maddin as “gorgeous, powerful and moving.”
The event was hosted in the amazing new office of Zendesk, their second building on Market Street, creating an urban campus that assists in the revival of the long-neglected Mid-Market neighborhood. The new building not only serves as a headquarters for the growing team, but also opens its doors as a communal hub for local businesses and residents.
The reception area has some both retail and hospitality influences, the reception area demonstrates the company dedication to excellent customer service. The reception desk functions as a server for company events. Both the ground floor with reception and the basement floor below are designed to be open and public facing, where Zendesk team members can grab a booth for a quick meeting, or the company can host events. As such, the two floors are connected physically by stadium seating and stairs, and visually through a vertical moss wall that spans between the two.
Another key design influence was the Danish concept of “hygge,” which roughly translates to “coziness.”
Totally in love with these offices :)
The offices were designed by Blitz
