Redwood LIFE in Redwood City, CA is the largest life science and innovation-focused campus on the San Francisco Peninsula, encompassing twenty buildings and one million square feet of commercial real estate. The Redwood LIFE Café is a recently renovated supporting food service amenity space for tenants. According to Karolina Glinka, Vice President of Habitec Architecture & Interior Design, San Jose, CA and Design Director on the project, “Property management imagined the restaurant to be a unique stand-alone oasis featuring a memorable look and feel that patrons would be eager to revisit.”
To create the desired look and feel of the ceiling, the design team chose WoodWorks Custom Grille panels from Armstrong World Industries. Glinka explains wood was chosen to tie into the campus brand and coordinate with many other wood ceiling lobbies on the campus. “In addition,” she says, “I’ve been specifying WoodWorks ceilings on projects for years, so I was quite comfortable using the product in as bold and exciting a fashion as this.”
