San Francisco

SmithGroup’s San Francisco office is located in the heart of the city’s Financial District, in the Bently Reserve on Battery Street (directly across from One Embarcadero Center). In this notable 1924 landmark that originally housed a branch of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, we retooled the 6th and 7th floors into a high-performance LEED Silver office space. The transformation earned us recognition from both Contract and Environmental Design + Construction magazines, as well as awards from the International Interior Design Association's Northern California Chapter, who bestowed the project with an Honor Award in the Workplace category and a Merit Award for Sustainability.

Just as we did with our own offices, SmithGroup is dedicated to creating inspiring places that enhance the environment and enrich the human spirit. Our San Francisco team embodies our mission and designs notable projects for clients such as Microsoft Corporation, the American Red Cross, Sutter Health, Kaiser Permanente, the University of California System, California State University System, and many more.

SmithGroup San Francisco

SmithGroup is a collection of big thinkers and hard workers located across the nation. As one large firm, we can provide a deep pool of talent, marquee clients, heady work, enviable benefits, and the latest in technologies and training. Conversely, the San Francisco office feels and operates like a small firm. We value and recognize staff who enhance and reinforce our San Francisco office culture: a place where people love to work, where they can learn, grow, and feel appreciated. Every two months, we nominate and award one of our team members for our in-house-designed (and 3-D printed) trophy. We recently launched an internal mentorship program to ensure that everyone here feels supported in their career advancement.

We also get together to laugh and play. Office happy hours, art shows, bake sales, holiday parties, and after-work gatherings are just some of the many celebrations you can look forward to as part of our team. And if you have an idea for a new office social event, we welcome it—and welcome you.
