Menlo Park Office Complex Renovations

Location: Menlo Park

Project Type:

Located in the epicenter of Silicon Valley, these Menlo Park office developments, built in the early 1970’s, were in need of improved wayfinding, accessibility and project identity.  PGAdesign was charged with preserving the sites’ natural assets while updating the landscape in response to a sophisticated tenant base.  The approach to the hardscape design drew from the simple forms and materials of the existing two and three story brick and wood buildings, while the landscape introduced formal elements such as allées and bosques at building entries with simplified native and Mediterranean plantings elsewhere.

PGAdesign collaborated closely with the graphic designer on site signage, establishing a theme of natural materials and simple graphics drawing from the era of the architecture.  Wayfinding was enhanced with the creation of a central plaza, building directories and signage monuments. Outdoor amenities were designed to provide for user needs as well as the identity of the overall project.
