Dropbox Headquarters

San Francisco, California
United States

Dropbox unites their previously divided offices into one San Francisco location in the heart of SoMa, with a “hash-tag” floor plan linking two six-story buildings. Unique interior design finishes are supported by lighting solutions which allow employees to find workspaces to suit their mood. Low light levels in what is called the “deep focus” space establishes the ideal work environment for coders, while bright custom luminaires at intersections encourage gathering for collaboration and socialization. Statement fixtures at a variety of scale create visual interest throughout. Lighting solutions were carefully considered in high-traffic areas such as the gym, break areas, coffee shop, and kitchen. In the lounges, 16-foot round illuminated ceilings were custom designed. In the restaurant and café, decorative fixtures are balanced with architectural features to provide targeted light levels. In the micro-kitchens, innovative oval fixtures were created by placing LED strips between shortened panel track blinds.
