  • Method, a San Francisco-based cleaning product company, recently moved into their new office space designed by architecture firm Garcia Tamjidi, who also recently design Airbnb’s new office. A little about the project:

    “Situated in a small, historic building off of San Francisco’s original waterfront is a concrete, brick and heavy timber building that houses the environmentally friendly and stylish cleaning projects maker, Method. Custom seating and reception desks are meant to be evocative of the shape of their soap bottles designed by Karim Rashid, and the all-white interior is a testament to their commitment to cleanliness. Employee areas take up three floors and feature a colorful “super-plaid” carpet pattern and a room covered with artificial turf and floral cushions to serve as their “inside outside”. Method received LEED Certification with this project–an achievement that they were driven to pursue despite a tight budget and restrictive schedule.”

    The design team also fashioned some decorative chandeliers from Method soap bottles.
