Located on the first floor of the Jackson Square building, the Scenic Advisement’s office renovated by Feldman Architecture boasts cool, creative and unique renovation.
Currently boasting a open office culture and design, the historical building was once a former horse stable situated along the Battery street in Embarcadero – the city’s eastern shoreline. Since then the place is said to have undergone many altercations through different ownership’s. The Scenic advisement bank which works for the private technology sector roped in Feldman Architecture along with interior furnishings’s from Artistic Designs For Living for the reformation of the historic space.
Keeping the century old brick walls and timber framing’s intact, glass enclosure were created for private meetings. ‘ Not the typical office’, the renovated office space design has a relaxed lounge area, conference room, an open kitchen with walls adorning graffiti and art works.

The Stable – Scenic Advisement
Upon entering this dynamic space, one’s mind might not immediately jump to the quaint yet historic past embedded into the bones of this Battery St. location. In fact, if not for the humble design elements of Douglas fir beams, high ceilings, and stall like enclosures, there would be no indication of its original purpose.

Named for its former usage, The Stable boasts not only a visually compelling layout of open conference rooms -reminiscent of the ones that historically housed equine in the original 1909 Bricca Stables- but contrasts of rough and sleek, both formal and informal in its modest yet deliberate design.

Each glass enclosure creates its own unique environment, while glass partitions allow natural light to reach into the depths of each individual compartment. Satin etched glass – a romantic nod to the fog that rolls in from the Bay- works to absorb and reflect the surrounding textures of wood and brick, camouflaging themselves into the rustic structure while offering an element of privacy to its occupants.

Relaxed lounge furniture, colorful abstract rugs, and a large kitchen island that acts as a communal area bring a sense of home and intimacy into the workplace, creating a unique work-life balance: warm, subtle, focused, and clean. The classic masonry wall, now accented by clean, minimal partitions, culminates in a space both historically San Francisco while highlighting the modern evolution taking place in the city.
