SAN FRANCISCO (January 9, 2019) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new offices of the property management division of CBRE located at 150 California Street, 4th Floor in San Francisco. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design and branding services for the project.

The new offices of CBRE, a global commercial real estate services and investment firm, span 14,000 square feet and a full floor of the landmark 150 California building in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district.

A modern, open office design concept was implemented to accommodate CBRE’s growing number of employees. A formal reception area greets visitors, while a variety of open and enclosed meeting areas provide a plethora of workspace options throughout the floor. The design also features two open café/break out areas to foster employee engagement. Branding and graphics played a strong role in the design, with CBRE’s core messaging and new workplace initiative guidelines incorporated throughout the space. In addition to providing interior architecture and design and branding services, Ware Malcomb also selected new furniture for the office.

“Our goal was to design a space that was highly functional for the CBRE team and consistent with their internal brand guidelines, while making it unique to the dynamic San Francisco market in which they operate,” said Rhea Butler, Director of Interior Architecture & Design of Ware Malcomb’s San Francisco office. “The modern, open design of this new office space will accommodate CBRE’s growing employee and client base for years to come.”

CBRE is the largest company of its kind in the world. Based in Los Angeles, the company operates more than 450 offices in over 100 countries worldwide.

The General Contractor for the project was BCCI.
