College Futures Foundation

TEF Design as Architects, Interior Designer

TEF created new work, conference and gathering spaces for the local non-profit organization which remotely supports California’s students as they navigate the process of acquiring a college degree.

 

College Futures Foundation engaged TEF to design its new offices to both reflect the organization’s innovative approach to philanthropy and embody their decades of service to the students of California. The broad, open work area was carefully configured to maximize access to daylight and sweeping views of the East Bay hills. Warm, inviting materials that evoke nearby landscapes give the space its character. Perimeter meeting and office spaces, supporting a range of private and collaborative work, embody themes drawn from California’s natural environment. The spaces are anchored by a 1,200 square-foot communal gathering hub, bracketed by an open kitchen and the wide curve of exterior windows, that supports the Foundation’s culture of engagement and equity.
