Oasis: Silicon Valley Technology Center Building
Oasis was conceived as an iconic beacon for innovation and design, majestic and intimate at the same time. With a suspended tropical garden in the midst of futuristic building systems, the large expanse of glass, and a multi-level enclosure, match aspirations to leave a meaningful imprint for better in the world.
Purposefully totemic, Oasis’ imagery is conceived as a piece of technology itself. Sited on a tight urban parcel in Santa Clara, California, facing the Great America theme park, this 300,000 square-foot project signals the inevitable shift in higher density and transit-oriented developments surfacing in Silicon Valley.
Intended as a prototype of tomorrow’s workplace, this 13 stories building supported by a transparent podium includes a sequence of retail experiences activating at the street level. As the ground curls into a canopy, a spacious public cafe at the end captures the pedestrian flow. A tongue of pushed and pulled earth is pierced strategically to filter light into the parking garage below.
On the 9th floor, there is a special place: the Big Sky Garden. People, an open-air café, and a grand environment give life to this 3-story urban retreat. This aspirational grand window casts visual magnetism for miles.
