A Look Inside VSCO’s Amazing Headquarters in Oakland
VSCO, an art and technology company that builds cool digital tools and products such as: VSCO Cam, and VSCO Film , recently decided to move into a new headquarters located in 1500 Broadway in Oakland, California. The space which was designed by Jack Debartolo is open and minimal, with clean lines and exposed natural materials.
“Jack Debartolo’s concept was to bring in as little artificial materials as possible, which is why the wood ceilings and the concrete walls remain exposed, and materials brought in are wood, metal, and glass. We used natural materials and the surrounding existing materials to create something modern and clean, but comfortable and warm. It’s meant to feel extremely open but connected. There are two work spaces off to the side with the center being communal seating, conference room, more seating, more conference rooms. Even the conference rooms needed to have a connection with the surrounding areas, which is why they are surrounded by glass.”
