RDC Urban Office
Long Beach, CA | Interiors
Client: RDC-S111, Inc.
Size: 35,000 SF
Repurposing a former Nordstrom Rack, RDC designed their new office to create an invigorating yet functional environment that befits the firm’s culture. The design removes all but one private office, dedicated to human resources, crafting a space for teams to share a collaborative, creative, open space. Scattered amid the office are break-out rooms that act as collaborative pods for meetings. A mezzanine wraps the perimeter of the interior space, creating a “bridgewalk” overlook with lounges, workspaces and pin-up zones. The entire space is programmed with elements including: hospitality kitchen, open work clusters, idea lounges, flex offices, a community room, material library, shower and lockers, and outdoor patios.
