With record heat across Southern California check out the hot news at ID Studios.

Featured Project - Volcano

Volcano Corporation is a Medical Technology company focused on making imaging and therapy simpler, more informative and less invasive. They selected ID Studios to help bring a cohesive design to it's new headquarters in San Diego. Of particular importance was a branding wall in the lobby to showcase product solutions and company history.

A warm, fun, fresh and informal space for employees was paramount while emphasizing the importance of innovation, technology and people.

Featured Project - Turner Construction

Henry Turner founded Turner Construction Company 111 years ago based on the core values of teamwork, integrity and commitment. Today, the company's reach is global, and each of its offices upholds its founder's vision to provide valuable services to clients, build partnerships in the community, and deliver important resources such as schools, hospitals, workplaces, and social and cultural centers.


In early 2014 Turner's San Diego office moved from a traditional six-story high-rise space with conventional dropped ceilings to a 15,000 s.f. office space designed for them by ID Studios and the end result is nothing short of awesome.


According to Rick Bach, Senior VP, of Turner Construction "We had the opportunity to design and build out our new office in a way that would embrace our growing lean culture. In an effort to be efficient, sustainable, and most importantly, collaborative, we reduced our USF/person and went from 21 offices to just 2. Change isn't always easy, but it is usually the first step towards improvement."


Extremely open, dispersed conference rooms and collaboration areas allow for departments to be visually separated while still creating a remarkable sense of teamwork. The design perfectly blends elements of a traditional brick-and-mortar company (fitting for a construction company) with cutting edge and imaginative office designs of the future.


In this regard, Turner is ahead of the curve. In recent years, office spaces like these tended to be conceived only by tech companies, but I'm confident that future of office space across all industries will follow in Turner's lead. It's quite likely that we'll even begin to see more of these kinds of spaces in traditional high-rise office buildings, as dated tenant improvements are systematically removed and the spaces are reimagined.
