The Intuit Bayshore Building is the second ground-up office building on the software company’s Mountain View campus. Designed by WRNS Studios and Clive Wilkinson Architects pre-pandemic, the interiors were subsequently redesigned by the architects to reflect the shift towards a post-pandemic hybrid work model. The four-story, 161,000sf LEED Platinum building supports 960 employees working in a hybrid approach. Large floor plates are organized into flexible, human-scaled neighborhoods that provide each team with space for collaboration, concentration, and socialization.


Upon entry, guests are greeted by a bright blue metal wall and seamless reception desk emerging from the polished concrete floor. Moving through the lobby, one encounters the jewel-box “Little House” hospitality space and the grand wood-clad stair fringed in greenery that ascends to the heart of the building – an airy three-story atrium filled with natural light from large linear skylights. A metal-clad blue stair winds upward through the atrium, passing cantilevered meeting pods and balconies that project into the space. This vibrant hub creates a focal point for adjacent coworking areas, a coffee bar, game space and other lively amenities.


This project brings to life progressive workplace thinking by providing a wide variety of spaces to support the ever-evolving needs of employees and management post-pandemic. It serves as a living example of reimagining the office’s role in a hybrid future. As a testament to Intuit’s commitment to inclusivity and culture of prioritizing the employee experience, the new building offers a wide array of work environments to support an employee base with diverse needs. It offers spaces for collaboration, respite for mental health, personal connection, and culture building – including a reflection room, a music room, and quiet libraries. The Bayshore Building stands as a model of adaptive design, shaping the future of the workplace while honoring Intuit’s enduring legacy.
