23andMe needed new headquarters with more space and light, better access to transit for the 77% of employees who commute on CalTrain, and perhaps most importantly, access to good coffee.

Just like 23andMe efficiently returns DNA test results to their customers, brick efficiently designed a bright, airy, sustainable workspace for this group of innovators, only 200 yards from CalTrain and excellent coffee.

The green roof at 23andMe’s new headquarters takes this cutting edge biotech company outdoors. Other sustainable features include water-efficient landscaping, high-performance windows, and local materials. One more sustainable feature? Bike storage; a necessity at a company where the CEO rides her bike to work every day, rain or shine.

899 West Evelyn, the brick-designed building at the foot of the historic Castro Street district that now houses 23ndMe, is an urban infill project, built on an underutilized vacant lot. The building is rated LEED Platinum and is WELL certified.

The variation of spaces, the combination of rustic and contemporary finishes, and the sweeping views make 150 sqft/person feel downright decadent.

From reclaimed lumber to smooth veneer, interior finishes were constructed with exacting detail.

23andMe’s space is designed to foster collaboration and spontaneous ideas, and includes multiple breakout areas with full-height glass whiteboards.

Throughout the design process, 23andme employees, subconsultants, furniture vendors, contractors, and craftspeople came to the table every single week for focused meetings, helping brick forge the best path forward for the growing company.
