Mindgruve Office Building
The Mindgruve Office Building was a renovation of a historically significant structure that once housed the Pacific Parachute Company during World War I and was owned and operated by one of the first minority-owned businesses on the West coast.
The existing three-story brick building was renovated to include a new rooftop deck and conference room as well as a full habitable basement. The first floor was designed and engineered to house a future retail/restaurant tenant while the second and third floors suit the office needs of the building owner and tenant, Mindgruve Branding Agency.
The design was inspired by the building’s history and highlights its story through aviation and historical references. A few key features include the rooftop deck outfitted with an executive conference room, rooftop bar, and lounge with firepits. A new custom-design stairwell that connects the rooftop deck is flooded w/ natural light from the sun-soaked roof deck. A full kitchen with dining/meeting booths as well as custom video-conference booths, located beneath the building’s original skylight, act as a central social hub for the bustling open-office workspace on the third floor.
