Bay Area Metro Center

Completion/ 2017

Location/ San Francisco, California

The renovation at the Bay Area Metro Center transformed a 1940s-era military warehouse into a modern, welcoming workspace serving four major Bay Area agencies: the Association of Bay Area Governments, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission. The outdoor space and new atrium were carved from the existing concrete structure, transformed by GLS with Perkins + Will and TEF architects. The eighth floor terrace offers agency workers a rooftop refuge and brings nature into the building, merging indoors and outdoors with striking Bay Bridge views.
