Marsh & McLennan San Diego Office, University City

The design of the 85,000-square-foot work space reflects Marsh & McLennan’s San Diego roots (dating back to 1909) and the local Southern California environment. The architecture reflects San Diego, the most biologically diverse county in the United States where temperatures, landscapes, and wildlife can vary greatly within just a few miles. The new design showcases and embodies the five local habitats, including farmlands, wetlands, beaches, mountains, and deserts, through a diverse layering of natural materials and textures. The work of local surf and nature photographer Aaron Chang is featured as well as graphics depicting the “fingerprints” of several local tree species which provide visual way-finding at the lobby of each floor. The new office is now part of the fabric of what is the Marsh & McLennan culture. The unique nature of its connection to the existing environment and healthy, people centered space creates a positive vision for the future.
