Ware Malcomb Announces Construction is Complete on Kinnate Biopharma Inc. Office in San Diego
Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced that construction is complete on the Kinnate Biopharma Inc. office building located at 12830 El Camino Real, Suite 150, in San Diego, California. Ware Malcomb provided the interior architecture & design and branding for the fully-agile, creative office space.
“Kinnate Biopharma desired a variety of working space options for employees,” said Angela Ryan, Director, Interior Architecture & Design for Ware Malcomb. “We were pleased to work closely with them to achieve a space that fosters a collaborative atmosphere through creative design elements and thoughtful programming.”
The 7,000 square foot space reflects Kinnate’s brand through the careful choice of colors, the incorporation of geometric shapes and a focus on a healthy workplace. The space is designed with a focus on a variety of places for employees and clients to meet, as opposed to dedicated personal offices or workstations. Included in the space are open, collaborative areas, enclosed rooms, touch-down workspaces, meeting rooms and an open office design, ideal for all-hands meetings. Acoustic baffles are located above the workstations, and a white noise system runs throughout the building.
A hybrid workplace, Kinnate encourages its employees to use the office for collaboration and save “heads-down” work for home. When in the office, employees can sit anywhere to plug in for short periods of time between meetings, and options range from lounge seating configurations to bar height seating. A small number of hoteling workstations are provided for employees visiting from other locations or team members working in the office for longer periods of time.
The new office is located within the One Paseo campus in San Diego. Located in the Del Mar Heights community, One Paseo is a mixed-use master-planned project incorporating office, residential and retail space. Ware Malcomb designed the 12 single-story restaurant and high-end retail buildings totaling approximately 96,000 square feet located within the development. Due to the amenities offered at One Paseo, Kinnate’s employees have access to restaurants, outdoor meeting spaces and more, serving as an extension to their work environment. The innovative configuration and forward-thinking design approach allow Kinnate to lease less square footage than most companies their size (less than 100 square feet per person), while welcoming all users.
The Kinnate project is a finalist for the Top Project – Tenant Improvement category of the 2022 San Diego Business Journal CRE Awards. The Commercial Real Estate Awards showcases the biggest, best and most notable commercial real estate projects and sales throughout San Diego. In addition, the project is nominated for a CoreNet SoCal REmmy Award. The REmmy Awards recognize stellar examples of the corporate real estate profession and the positive impact of the workplace.
General contracting services for the project were provided by Bycor General Contractors, Inc.
