Located at The Landmark at One Market, in San Francisco, Harb, Levy & Weiland is one of the top 25 certified public accounting and consulting firms which provides financial services industry expertise including audit, tax and consulting services to investment advisors and securities partnerships worldwide.
Creating an open, welcoming, and rich environment that gestures to the historic location was a priority for the design team. The corporate offices occupy approximately 20,000 RSF in a building which has views of the San Francisco Bay and the landmark Ferry Building across the Embarcadero.
In order to maximize those views and allow daylight to penetrate the space through the perimeter partner offices, generous amounts of strategically-located butt-glazing was utilized both in the interior walls of the offices and the wall along the internal walkway.
A reception lobby that flows into the board room through large custom pivoting glass doors maximizes the feeling of openness. Green building materials, such as the bamboo flooring and carpets bring a warm and natural feel to the interior, along with white marble which echos the marble utilized in the ground floor building lobby. Exposed brick and concrete columns reconnect the observer to the buildings distant past.
