Central + Wolfe Campus by HOK
Sunnyvale, California
Status: Completed

A Tech Campus as Innovative as its People. Welcome to the future of work – an office that sparks imagination and promotes wellness by connecting employees with their colleagues and nature. This was the vision for Central & Wolfe, a curvilinear, concrete-and-glass campus that stands out from the cookie-cutter tilt-up ‘boxes’ that long have characterized Silicon Valley.

Central Wolfe Overall Courtyard 04

The 18-acre campus features three petal-shaped main buildings, a standalone amenities building and a parking structure. Northern California’s unique ecosystem is on full display throughout the campus with open plazas, sports courts, trails and landscaped green spaces of redwoods, live oaks and native grasses making up more than half the site.

“Biophilic design is taken to a new level at Central + Wolfe designed by HOK … the Silicon Valley campus throws a refreshing curveball into the expanses of boxy architectural parks that occupy the valley.” Says the Wallpaper magazine.

Central Wolfe Exterior 02

A curving glass facade knits together the three office wings to form a unified, clover-shaped facility. The office buildings appear to float above third-floor entry bridge porte-cochères that resemble giant porches and give passers-by clear views into the heart of the campus. The flexible design allows all three buildings to operate together for a single tenant or independently and subdivided for multiple occupants.
