235 PINE STREET, 17TH FLOOR SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA Polytech Associates is an architecture, planning, and interior design firm in San Francisco, CA. At the expiration of their lease in 2011, the firm’s leadership determined that a larger office was necessary in order to support the firm’s growing project load. Polytech created a series of test-fits for each space under consideration, identifying the 17th Floor at 235 Pine Street as the candidate that would provide the space needed currently, and would allow the firm to continue to grow its staff over the next ten years. Polytech’s design staff developed the interior architecture and interior design program for the approximately 7,800 sf tenant improvement program.

1800 HARRISON STREET, REGIONAL OFFICES OAKLAND, CA Polytech Associates was selected to provide the lobby redesign for a major healthcare provider’s regional offices as part of their effort to elevate security. The 600,000 sf, twenty-five story building located at 1800 Harrison Street in Oakland, CA includes four levels of parking. Polytech was responsible for designing upgrades to elevator cars, a new bronze and granite lobby security console, and code survey. Specified materials are architecturally integrated, and keep with the timeless look of the building lobby. The stone floor surrounding the original security console was carefully removed and reused in the new configuration.


South of Market Health Center (SMHC) is a nonprofit community clinic providing quality healthcare to under-served members of this San Francisco neighborhood. Executive director, Charles Range leads SMHC with the philosophy that all people deserve the same high level of health care and set his vision to build a community clinic that elevates the health care delivery experience for all; patient, caregiver and staff. Polytech Associates partnered with SMHC to bring their egalitarian vision to reality. The design program for the 20,000 sf clinic combines modern, clean lines with a light color palette, rich textures, natural materials and an open space plan that allows natural light to penetrate the space. Each of these design elements was selected to lend comfort and calm to the building. The flexible plan and room size allows SMHC to increase the number of patients and services they provide while minimizing costly renovations.


The Oakland Athletics selected Charles F. Jennings Architects to design the headquarters offices when they relocated from leased space to the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum. Two levels of office space totaling over 11,000 sf were constructed within an existing unimproved double height space by adding a new second floor. The project included offices for executives, marketing, sales, community relations, accounting, and operations. Interior glass walls and windows in the perimeter offices provided natural light and views to the plaza concourse from all office areas. Centrally located support spaces housed secure areas for accounting and were used to articulate a public lobby that exhibits the Athletics’ four World Championship trophies. This project was completed by Charles Jennings while in private practice.
