Brereton collaborated with design architect Iwamoto Scott Architecture to create the new Pinterest Headquarters in San Francisco. The design was inspired by the company's web platform; clean, simple and intuitive. The building is a four story concrete structure that previously housed a John Deer Factory in San Francisco's Central SOMA district.
The program is organized as porous, concentric layers around a large, central interconnecting atrium and stair. The program includes: large "town hall" all-hands / dining space on the ground floor, expansive open workspace on the upper three floors, both formal and informal meeting rooms, team rooms, lounge spaces, quiet room, maker lab, coffee bar, and design studio. A key aspect of the design involved extending the two story atrium to the ground floor, creating a central void at the building's center that visually connects all four floors within reach which lives the main communication stair.
