Balance of Powers
O+A designed Sapphire Ventures’ recharged space in Palo Alto to be an expression of these dichotomies. A visioning session with Sapphire’s team uncovered two-fold aspirations for virtually every aspect of the new space: elegant, but industrial; intense, but warm; edgy, but comfortable. (Not too comfortable). We recognized this duality as central to the success of a company that balances visionary resource allocation with asset management based on the classic principles of finance.
