What’s equal parts sophisticated and equal parts approachable? Avison Young’s North American showpiece – their new San Francisco headquarters.

San Francisco, CA

Design Concept

Designed to feel like you’re on the streets of the city with its alleyway pop up eateries, cafés, bars and shared workspaces, the 11,000 sq. ft. Avison Young San Francisco HQ puts the client and the company’s working ethos first. This workspace is as different as Avison Young. They have a new way of working in real estate with their “open architecture” business approach. This ethos places the needs of their clients first and harnesses true collaboration. These principles are at the core of the design and what sets this environment apart.

Fly by Office

The office reception welcomes both world-wide employees and world-wide clients daily. The influx of visitors are greeted by a ‘concierge’ waiting at the bar to pour espresso (or something stronger!). Avison Young’s colleagues and clients are hosted as if they are in a hotel–encouraged to utilize the space's lounges to work, meet or network, making this space feel like all its truly part of the city’s fabric. Visiting employees find a home within a foreign city here.


Subtle and functional, brand elements are communicated through features like the wood slatted ceilings, screening partitions and bar details.


The workplace layout actively promotes employee drive-by collisions meaning frequent internal dialogue and cross pollination between all levels of the firm. The unique aesthetic and enlivened amenities foster a culture unlike any other Avison Young office. If San Francisco is any company’s gateway to the west, this office is Avison Young’s gateway to a new era of workplace vibrancy and is atrue trendsetter amongst the brokerage community.
