Headspace, one of the most popular meditation apps with nearly 60 million users, has completed a 22,000-sf expansion on its Santa Monica corporate headquarters.
The Montalba Architects-designed project reflects the company’s values of mindfulness, innovation, and dedicated purpose. The expansion includes flexible workstations; a group meditation area; open, outdoor areas for work or meditation; lounge spaces for brainstorming and extracurricular office gatherings; private phone booths; collaborative meeting rooms; and large kitchens for daily lunches.
An entry stair functions as a workspace that transitions into large stadium seating for company-wide events. A media screen rolls down in front of a large bi-fold door, and a large suspended curtain encases the screen to control light and sound. Free standing meditation pods and quiet meditation areas are available throughout the space to allow employees additional moments of solitude.
An area of former parking spaces was turned into a large outdoor courtyard that flows through the workspace into the central, open-air courtyard on the second floor. The open-air enclosure filters light and greenery into the previously dark, isolated spaces.
The expansion project was completed earlier in January.
