Phase I of the Jackson Square Office provided a new home for a growing company that valued collaboration and excellence in every aspect of their work and their environment. The lobby was created as the first glimpse of the office style, with momentary views of the main space, while maintaining the necessary privacy for the work happening beyond. Custom floating metal panels with wood insets, geometric patterned wood ceiling panels, and overlapping walls and ceilings all accentuate the existing double height wood beam ceiling, steel columns, and exposed brick walls. Various meeting rooms with different sizes and configurations allow for different types of team uses, while the few private offices double as meeting rooms for the partners.

Phase II of the Jackson Square Office added a second floor with more collaborative open office space, a partner office, a wellness room, and various size meeting rooms. There is an interplay between refined and rustic materials, including the raw brick, the painted steel, glass partitions and reclaimed wood wall finishes.
Jennifer Tulley Architects is a boutique architecture firm founded in New York City in 2002 and relocated to San Francisco in 2006. Our work includes both residential and commercial projects, and has ranged from institutional development to small home alterations.
Our style is contemporary and approachable, with a preference for clean and uncluttered design, whether is it a traditional or modern project. Our designs feature a blend of material and textures, crisp detailing and a clear floor plan favoring site views and openness to nature. Our work is informed by a rich modern aesthetic and by the belief that form and function can be perfectly married, that high design can be accomplished on an economically rational basis, and that buildings foster uplifting experiences for their users.
Our collaborative process allows us to understand our clients design preferences, lifestyle and practical requirements, and to complement their own thinking with fresh and innovative ideas. We strive to ensure that the creative process continues through all phases of design and construction, creating modern, contemporary and stylish spaces.
