  1. Introducing our Hospitality Studio

    Seacrest Village Dining, Bar and Pre-function space, Design and Rendering by ID StudiosYOU MIGHT NOT HAVE KNOWN __ ID Studios has a team of extremely talented hospitality designers within our multi-faceted studio. Project experience includes multi-family housing, restaurants, country clubs, event spaces, boutique hotels and even cruise ships! We are especially excited about the inroads ID Studios is making in the hospitality and senior living arenas. As we take on more senior living projects, our designers are integrating the resort and hospitality experiences into these projects that appeal to our retiring population. Hospitality design elements are also showing up in our corporate and creative office space. The common denominator in all of these design solutions is blending work, life, wellness and play. These unique spaces fit to our client’s needs, individual experiences and truly define a new genre of ‘place’.

    Our industry partners know us as a trusted advisor in the corporate and higher education realm and we hope to inspire more introductions and connections in the hospitality and senior living world as our portfolio expands. We intend to provide the hospitality and senior living industry the same high standards, knowledge base and creativity that we have been providing since our beginning 14 years ago.

    Stay tuned for more new and exciting hospitality and senior living projects from ID Studios. In the meantime, take a look at some of our latest projects in the works.

  2. IIDA Well Building CEU at JLL’s Office

    The IIDA SoCal held a Well Building Standard CEU at the offices of JLL San Diego and the lobby of the Aventine Building in La Jolla. It started with a tour of the lobby, and ended in the JLL flexible conferencing and entertainment area. Senior Designer, Annie Wilson, ID Studios newest Senior Project Manager, was on hand to point out all of the wonderful design features of the office.

    Thank you to everyone who attended. It was fun showing off the office to the design community. IIDA posted more pictures of the event on their website.

  3. Corporate Branding in The Built Environment

    Moz Metals has posted an article about Corporate Branding in The Built Environment which includes an ID Studios client, Moss Adams.

    With branding all around us in both the physical and digital world, corporate identity has seeped into nearly every aspect of daily life. In the 21st century, we have to ask ourselves: how can a brand establish a unique identity without getting lost in this information overload? How can a brand evoke industry values of technology, hard work, and innovation through the lived experience of its physical spaces? How can an office create a positive response from users through branding?

    The WD-40 Company has been reinventing itself ever since its founders figured out that the solvents and degreasers they were creating for the aerospace industry might also be useful to consumers with squeaky doors and rusty lawnmowers.

    While WD-40’s worldwide workforce has grown from 3 to 450 over the years, and its product mix has expanded well beyond that flagship lubricant in the blue and yellow can, its San Diego headquarters had been stuck in a bygone era until last August, when they moved from the Morena District to a two-story, 42,000-square-foot building in Scripps Ranch.

  7. An Iconic Renovation: Brixton Capital

    Brixton Corporate Headquarters, Design by ID Studios, Photos by Stephen WhalenThis stand alone, 2-story building with basement was originally designed as a movie theatre and converted to office space in 1950. Brixton Capital acquired the building with the intent to modernize it for their own Corporate Headquarters and to share with tenants. The design was based on an open concept, maximizing the coastal views of Fletcher Cove and bringing those elements into the interior of the space. The renovation features a new monument stair which took into account the circular theme inherent in the existing architecture.

  8. Project Spotlight: Swinerton Renewable Energy

    Swinerton Renewable Energy, Design by ID Studios, Photos by Swinerton BuildersSwinerton Renewable Energy is a division of Swinerton Builders that provides engineering, procurement, construction and monitoring of solar voltaic plants throughout North America. This new 24/7 facility hearkens back to ID Studio’s previous design of Swinerton Builders through similar raw interior architectural elements, but departs from that concept with a more modern and energizing material and furniture aesthetic. The focus throughout was to create a bright, comfortable and dynamic space for employees working long, sometimes overnight shifts.

    Their new center has been highlighted on Power World Analysis and on Solar Industry News.

    You can even watch a construction video put together by TekWorks.

    “Clients need to optimize real estate.” says Elliott. “The cost of real estate is rising. As a result, offices are getting smaller and workstations are getting smaller. More collaborative and meeting spaces are needed due to the reduction of personal space. The topic of workplace trends and their relationship to floorcovering is interesting because today flooring is such an important part of our designs. We are using a variety of floorcovering materials to create those spaces, combining soft and hard surface.”

    Pictures of Lytx, an ID Studios project, were featured in Floor Focus’s February issue. Check it out!

    CARPET TILE DESIGN
    Over the last couple of decades, the carpet tile category has been moving and shaking: taking control of the corporate or workspace sector, gaining ground in education and, now, beginning to find its place in both healthcare and hospitality applications. What’s more, as Millennials increasingly make their impact on commercially designed workspaces, carpet tile is likely to find itself perfectly positioned. After all, what floorcovering product is more suited to the Millennial mindset than carpet tile: a modular and tactile product with substantial green and wellness story, inherent style and limitless capacity for customization.
