Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, recently announced construction is complete on the new offices of Ultimate Software located at 55 2nd Street in the financial district of San Francisco. Ware Malcomb served as Architect of Record for the project. The new home of the San Francisco office of Ultimate Software, a leading human resources, payroll and talent company devoted to human capital management technology, comprises 23,000 square feet of creative office space over two floors.
The graphics-driven design aesthetic of the new space provides a playful connection to the city with aerial views, cityscapes and inspirational quotes woven throughout. Other design elements include creative meeting spaces that encourage collaboration, an IT tech stop for employees, and a hidden library accessed through a bookcase door operating on a pivot. Various wellness components were also incorporated throughout the office environment including treadmill and massage rooms, gaming areas and a living garden wall, ensuring the well-being of employees at work and embodying the company’s founding principle: “People First.”
Ultimate’s focus on people is evident and award-winning. The company is ranked #8 on Fortune magazine’s 2019 list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For," and has ranked in the top 25 on the list since 2012.
“It was exciting to take a design concept and bring to life a new creative office space in the heart of vibrant San Francisco,” said Rhea Butler, director of interior architecture & design of Ware Malcomb’s San Francisco office. “The new people-focused offices of Ultimate feature the latest in creative office and wellness elements to create an engaging and productive environment for both employees and visitors.”
