Obscura Digital, an immersive and interactive media company, relocated to this 36,000 square foot three-level warehouse in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. The main design concept introduces a large multifunction space at the center of the building by removing three central bays of the second floor, thereby creating a double-height prototyping, exhibition and event space around which the other functions are organized. IwamotoScott’s own office, located at one end of the space, is defined by the self-produced folded steel installation, BookCaseScreenWall - a functional, porous boundary between the two offices.
