Yves Behar, Amir Mortazavi and Steve Mohebi have unveiled designs for the CANOPY Jackson Square. Following the success of CANOPY Pacific Heights, the team will open the second location in April 2018 in San Francisco's historic North Beach/Jackson Square neighborhood. CANOPY Jackson Square will deliver impeccable contemporary design, a sophisticated and diverse community, and a serene, distraction-free environment for up to 250 members to concentrate, connect and do their best work.
The new location will uniquely feature a 1,500-square-foot outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of San Francisco for year-round outside work and socializing, as well as 11,000 square feet of premium, Class-A co-working space inside. CANOPY Jackson Square will feature 23 private, sound-proof offices equipped with Herman Miller Sit-to-Stand Desks for one to 16 people each, in addition to shared workspaces and private desks for freelancers and nomadic workers.
"CANOPY Jackson Square is designed to combine spacious private work spaces with thoughtful social lounges for collaboration," said CANOPY co-founder Behar. "The design intent is to add a striking new idea for what work is within the North Beach iconic neighborhood. The triangular floorplan has private linear office on two sides, with a central organic lounge space that functions as a social forest canopy made of a vertical and overhead fanning geometry and organic seating."
CANOPY's second location is on the corner of the City's famed Columbus Street and Pacific Avenue. Built from the ground up by Amir Mortazavi of M-PROJECTS, and custom designed by Yves Behar and Amir Mortazavi, CANOPY will exemplify the new Jackson Square and pioneering spirit of San Francisco.
A semi-enclosed awning canopy comprised of structural fanning trees will live within the generous space to provide an intimate environment, filtering light and noise the expressive canopy - which will extend to a coffee shop - will act like a living room, affording members a sense of comfort and belonging. Outside, an expansive terrace with views of San Francisco's downtown skyline, including the landmark Transamerica Pyramid and Francis Ford Coppola's Sentinel Building, will be partially covered and heated for year-round use.
