This project was the first opportunity for Coinbase to design a space to truly reflect their culture.
They wanted a space that accommodated all types of work postures while maintaining a fun yet “financial” design aesthetic.
The design team took an analog approach to the virtual currency that the Coinbase platform represents and based the palette on foreign currencies.
Workstations were accommodated in “neighborhoods,” each with their own character, amenities, collaboration zones, and focus areas. Each ‘neighborhood’ was defined by color and adjacent to clear circulation zones leading to common areas such as main conference areas, breakroom, game room, and all-hands space.
