A Tour of Instacart’s New Sleek San Francisco Office
“Two large work cafes, located on the 6th and 11th floors, feature cafe and bar height tables, comfortable couches, and residential design touches that provide spaces for concentrated work and informal collaboration and socialization. Both cafes provide a warm and inviting place for staff to work and meet with visitors in a retail-like experience with full coffee bars inspired by favorite neighborhood haunts near their original office, the founder’s apartment. The 6th floor work cafe is located adjacent to the office reception and provides an instant entrée into the Instacart culture of comfort and accessibility. Visual access between the spaces removes hierarchy and allows visitors to immediately feel “at home” in the space. The 11th floor work cafe serves as the all-hands and special events space for the office and is lined by windows on two sides with expansive Bay Views. Small Conference rooms adjacent to the all-hands space provide opportunities for quick breakouts. Workstations, located on the perimeter of the large floor plate, allow all staff access to windows, daylight, and views. Meeting rooms and phone booths, located in the center of the floors, feature strategic glass-wrapped walls that create visual access from one end of the office to the other while still providing acoustical privacy. All meeting rooms have a strong two-toned paint palette to express the sliced carrot which is so inherent to the Instacart brand”, said Blitz.
