The site has inhospitable adjacencies on all sides; a major freeway (880), a 6-lane overpass, a strip retail shopping plaza, and a busy 4-lane road. The courtyard design exceeds the minimal state mandated outdoor play space and allowed the architectural scale to be reduced to a more child-friendly “residential” size. Extensive overhangs provide shade and eliminate the need for internal corridors.

HEADQUARTERS RENOVATION:
Pre-construction services for a 2,925,000 SF project consisting of new offices within R & D buildings on a portion of the existing Cisco San Jose ‘Site 4’ campus.
