Ware Malcomb Announces Completion of Airspace Technologies in Carlsbad
Office is located within The Atlas at Carlsbad campus, also designed by Ware Malcomb
Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new offices of Airspace Technologies located at 5909 Sea Otter Place, Suite 200 in Carlsbad, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the project.
The new Airspace Technologies offices are located within the Atlas at Carlsbad campus, for which Ware Malcomb previously provided architectural design services. Ware Malcomb also designed the common areas for the building concurrently with the Airspace Technologies build-out. This included the first and second floor lobbies, corridors, utilities and restrooms.
The finished 23,000 square foot interior tenant improvement project for Airspace Technologies, a technology-enabled logistics service provider, gives employees a brand new home in a creative office environment. With three distinct departments, Ware Malcomb designed a neighborhood layout that allows each team to work, collaborate, and focus to fit their respective workplace behaviors. The Design and Engineering departments have several meeting areas which are composed of both enclosed rooms and impromptu stand-up “scrum” areas. In contrast, the Administrative department includes more private offices and phone/focus rooms. The centrally located reception, boardroom, and break area provide a hub for employees to circulate amongst departments while also providing a welcoming environment for visitors.
The materials used throughout the space reflect the office’s expansive canyon views facing west towards the Pacific Ocean. Varying shades of green in the flooring provide subtle wayfinding and directly relate to Airspace Technologies’ branding. The numerous natural wallcoverings, wood veneers, and playful decorative lighting create unique experiences in each meeting area. Strategically placed acoustical ceiling clouds above the workstations celebrate the exposed structure of the building while addressing concerns of acoustics in an open office environment. The dynamic ceiling treatment at the entry features veneer wraps up the wall and this theme continues along the ceiling with varying angles, recessed lighting, and a built-in banquette seat.
“The new offices of Airspace Technologies reflect the company’s shift towards a more sophisticated and connected environment,” said Tiffany English, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s San Diego Office. “Their expansion into more square footage also ensures their new office space will meet the growing needs of the company for many years to come. The fact that Airspace is located within the larger Atlas at Carlsbad campus, with the creative environment and amenities that this campus provides, is an added benefit for employees and visitors alike.”
The General Contractor for the project was Good & Roberts, the Construction Manager was Hughes Marino, and the furniture vendor was Cultura.
