When tasked with designing the San Francisco headquarters of innovative car insurance company Metromile, we were inspired to explore vintage mid-century qualities with a modern flare. The 8,000 square foot space references the beauty of classic cars with its material palette of chrome and saddle while yellow ochres and oxblood reds add retro warmth.
Framed by cacti and palms, monumental photographic murals of open roads submerse viewers in the road trip experience while unexpected custom art features divide the space. A semi-transparent wall of sign letters and a custom Geremia-designed sand art bench provide functional decoration while installations of beaded car seat covers, vintage road maps and convex mirrors surprise visitors with playful appropriations from the everyday.
