New office fitout in a historical building
THE SETTING Zappettini Capital took a stripped down space of approximately 1600sq.ft. in the iconic historical Russ Building in downtown San Francisco to install its prestigious main office. High ceilings, old radiators and original windows formed the canvas for the work.
THE SCOPE Design a layout to include a reception, executive office, two closed offices, a conference room and a kitchenette. Work with the local contractor to specify materials and electrical and audi-visual layout.
THE SPECIAL REQUEST Create a sophisticated, discreet and elegant environment in which the building heritage complements the Italian heritage of the client. The executive office should be away from the reception, have acces to the conference room and direct access to the assistant’s office. Artwork should give the final touch to the space.
THE CONCEPT Hardwood floors and soft grey custom-mixed organic paints on the walls give a European flair to the space. Majestic full height doors, sliding bronze-meshed glass doors and indirectly lit, soffeted ceiling convey luxury and a stately quality to the volumes. Carefully chosen feature antiques and artwork give the sophistication and daring panache to the elegant space. A bespoke conference table,designed by NOMADESSENCE and made of an Italian Portoro marble slab, hand-picked, and bronzed Venetian glass legs with brass connectivity trimmings, becomes the wow-factor centerpiece of the conference room.

Noble materials, sourced responsibly, make up the surfaces of the offices, from rehabilitated estate flooring in solid oak, organic paints, and a recyclable glass and bronze mesh element for the conference room doors, natural linen for the curtains. The LED lamps are handcrafted in Belgium. The bespoke table is fabricated from a marble one-off slab from an Italian quarry, and Venetain glass with recycled brass which cleverly incorporates hidden connectivity details for seamless video conferencing.
