Inside Pura Vida Bracelets’ New San Diego Headquarters
Pura Vida Bracelets, a fashion company that sources ethically-produced handcrafted bracelets and accessories from artisans worldwide, recently relocated into a new office in La Jolla, San Diego, designed by architecture firm Hollander Design Group.
“If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”- that phrase was repeatedly said over the course of the project and was the inspiration behind the design of Pura Vida’s La Jolla headquarters. The design intent was to create a space that embodies the “pura vida” way of life and captures the essence of the company. The importance of light, color and use of greenery were key elements in delivering a space that felt fresh and organic.
The open floor plan with floor to ceiling glass, allows for an abundance of natural light to filter throughout the space and showcases the 180 degree ocean views only a few blocks away. Everything is visible to everyone, from the reclaimed wood conference table and custom bronze chandelier to the ping pong table at the opposite end of the suite. Earthy tones and natural elements reminiscent of a beachside bungalow were paired with bold graphic wallcoverings, pops of color and metallic gold accents to infuse a sense of simplicity and vibrancy that’s on brand with their culture.
The reception was designed to resemble a storefront with their products on display and a custom mural for the perfect instagramable moment,” says Hollander Design Group
