This California State office building is 360,000 sf and includes office, assembly, employee amenities, and neighborhood retail food service. The building has a capacity of 1,150 employees and houses staff from the Health and Human Services Agency, the Department of State Hospitals, and the Department of Developmental Services. Clearstory developed the wayfinding program that is integrated with the architectural portals and interior palette of the building creating a cohesive experience. The program also created an innate wayfinding system for the employees by establishing a language of quadrants, or neighborhoods for the workplace environment that stacks throughout the structure.
