Interior Design

Gensler Studio of San Diego

We aim to redefine workplace design in San Diego by breaking the box of the antiquated office building, and breathing new life into the workplace environment , putting our well-being, community involvement , & collaborative culture at the center of the design.


San Diego is a place of dreamers and idealists, makers and artists, it’s a place where work and play are fundamental – and we take pride in that. People say we’re laid back, yet we hold a passionate commitment to design excellence and a culture of entrepreneurial spirit. We like to take risks, explore, innovate, fail, learn, grow and do it again. So rather than being laid back, we think of our culture as “informal”.


And we think it’s our San Diego environment that creates our culture. It’s this informal exchange of ideas that empowers and multiplies, it’s the collision of different ideas that incites innovation.


In response to our idealistic environment and informal culture we like to think of our new home as a

Studio rather than an office. A place where ideas and the breeze flow freely, and space that supports your process. It’s the informal living room that sparks collaboration and the outdoor deck to getaway and re-energize. The open flexible and simple studios allow for focus and innovation. The bar is communal and cultivates our sharing culture. It’s a visually diverse environment that creates the unexpected, it reflects our passions and showcases our craft.
