The unique corporate headquarters for Clif Bar includes an expansive open office, a 6,800-sf daycare facility, café, fitness center, theater and multipurpose room. To delineate "neighborhoods" within the space, 400 linear feet of planter walls containing live foliage and Zen rock gardens cross the office. Meeting rooms are housed within two central 150-sf cubes composed of glass, steel and wood. A mezzanine constructed of recycled steel and wood to provide more privacy for such departments as human resources. Throughout the facility, artwork abounds: Suspended from the main ceiling, for instance, are sculptures made of used sporting gear like the "Kayak Helix."
