When Zillow moved into the old-school Standard Oil Building in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District, their first step was to open up the entire space and give it a much more modern feel. Parallel to the online real estate company's "get things done fast" style, the move itself was lighting-quick, giving design team Blitz only six weeks to completely transform the space. The end result? A fresh and brand-forward space.
Zillow, an online home and real estate marketplace founded by the creators of Expedia, started with the mission to empower consumers with information and tools to make smarter decisions when purchasing homes. The Zillow team invited us to access their newly-renovated, ultra-cool offices in San Francisco, where the tech world is seamlessly integrated with design.
The team made a conscious choice to locate all of their US offices in busy downtown areas. The office is close to public transportation, is bike friendly, and is close to a million places to go out to lunch.
