Menlo Park Office Complex Renovations

Location: Menlo Park

Project Type:

Located at the epicenter of Silicon Valley, these Menlo Park office developments, built in the early 1970s, needed improved wayfinding, accessibility, and site identity. PGAdesign was charged with preserving the site’s natural assets while updating the landscape in response to a sophisticated tenant base. The approach to 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, and simplified native and Mediterranean plantings elsewhere.

PGAdesign collaborated closely with the graphic designer for on-site signage, establishing a theme of natural materials and simple graphics, echoing the architectural aesthetic. The addition of a central plaza, building directories, and signage monuments enhanced wayfinding. Outdoor amenities were designed to meet user needs and provide a sense of place identity.
