Moshiri Associates created a rustic modern interior space for Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals HQ. Arrowhead’s Los Angeles location is located within a high rise in Old Pasadena. Exposed ceilings and concrete floors meet rustic lighting, furniture, and other floor finishes like weathered tile and hardwood, spanning two floors with interconnecting stairs. The space was designed with almost 95% private offices - with health and safety conscious design in mind. The vision was to build a relaxing yet professional space for the staff to enjoy, and it was designed around the staff lounge where employees meet to collaborate and build team synergy.
