    CoreLogic has been featured on OfficeSnapshots. Office Snapshots displays and discusses the latest designs and trends in office design.

    About the CoreLogic project:

    CoreLogic is a leading, real estate information and analytics service provider in the United States and Australia with its roots leading back to The First American Company started 125 years ago in Southern California. The San Diego division plays a key administrative and client support role in the company and has a unique culture of people and processes.

    The new office quarters were an excellent opportunity to create a cultural change and start fresh in a new environment. The vision was to create a space where the client’s values of Culture, Collaboration and Connection would be the foundation. The selected building lent itself to a main “connection pathway” that goes straight through the heart of the building and gives all employees access to every department.

    Creating defined space for both privacy and collaboration; blending a formal parent company culture with the expressive and casual family oriented work environment of this division; and designing for two functionally diverse divisions within this office were key challenges for the project team. While the heads down, and individual work spaces needed to support privacy and provide a place to focus for long periods of time, there was also a need to keep everyone connected and communicating.

    It was also important to demonstrate the new casual shift with higher open ceilings, more natural light, a connection to a “modern-raw” vernacular, and the incorporation of natural materials. 95% of the employees were located in high ceiling open plan space with direct connections to the exterior natural light and the teams they work with. The people are “connected” through simple, pure monolithic branding walls which define the central connective circulation paths, interact with major destination hubs, create opportunities for branded messages, and encompass over 18 collaboration spaces.

  2. Tables for Tots 2014 Event

    ID Studios has participated in the local Tables for Tots annual event for years as a way to give back to the community through a fun and friendly design competition. This year’s theme was “Hero’s for Tots” and joined with 15 other firms to create a kid-friendly, usable piece of art.

    This year, ID Studios was inspired by Batman. The title for our “table” was “To the Bat Cave! There’s not a moment to lose!”

    ID Studios second place table in the Deconstructed category. “To The BatCave!”

    “The Batcave serves as a place of privacy and tranquility where Batman can be himself and is also an ideal stronghold for his war against crime. You can avail yourself of this child size fortress and simultaneously be a real-life hero by helping to provide programs that strengthen families during difficult times.”

    Our table was chosen to be included in the live auction and gained the second highest bid of the night! Overall, it was second place in the Deconstructed category. What a great event for everyone involved.

    We would like to thank everyone who sponsored our table.
    History of the Tables for Tots event:

    “Tables for Tots” began in 2009 as a way to partner with the design community of San Diego and raise

    money for the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego. Local architectural and design firms, as well as industry professionals, can register to receive a child-sized set of table and two chairs. They use their creative talents and build the most amazing solutions. These designs were exhibited and auctioned at the sixth annual “Tables for Tots” held on Thursday, August 14 at the Ronald McDonald House.

    This year $47,462 was raised in total and given directly to the Ronald McDonald House; event items are either donated or paid by G/M Business Interiors.
