Bringing new life to a nondescript warehouse, Tarlton Properties’ adaptively repurposed 1305 O’Brien to become a state-of-the art R&D and manufacturing headquarters for Pacific Biosciences. With its deep canopy, clear glazing and steel supports, the new entrance welcomes employees to the modernized workplace. The entry opens to a two-story lobby space that furthers Pacific Biosciences goal of facilitating interaction and collaboration across disciplines. Taking advantage of the existing high-bay warehouse, a two-story, tiered meeting space was added to the center of the building to create an all-hands gathering space. The new building—evocative of the industrial character of the surrounding neighborhood—is now an inspiring component for the ongoing modernization of the sixteen-building Menlo Business Park.
