Kitchens, Lounges, and Break Areas Expand in SoMa Offices

Couches and Lounge Chairs Provided for Employees

No matter how big the kitchen and break area are in our office suites, the tenants in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) expand them.  Tech tenants are designing more informal work areas and collaboration areas within their space.  These spaces serve as an internal coffee shop or lounge.  These areas can also provide an alternative space from the rows of workstations or tables for employees to work.  Due to the variety and design in these suites, it can be hard to differentiate whether one is in a hotel lobby, coffee shop, fraternity house, or office.  Some tech firms host group lunches to encourage collaboration and require a dining space within an office suite to accommodate this activity.

Here are several pictures from our recent suites ranging from 10,000 to 12,000 square feet displaying these new, collaborative additions.
