Green Office Space in San Francisco

One of the most beautiful office buildings in San Francisco has to be the Letterman Digital Art Center in the Presidio. It is the new home of Industrial Light & Magic, the people who brought you the special effects in most of the blockbuster movies coming out of Hollywood. Going for a walk in the Presidio of San Francisco not only gets you out into the fresh air, but it will bring you to this incredible office complex as these photos show.

Sit on a park bench and imagine working here. We walked by windows that showed the office workers have access to a full work out floor. It is impressive what George Lucas and Lucasfilm accomplished just a few years ago. Converting the old Letterman Hospital into this amazing work environment within the public space of the Presidio is a big deal.

Interesting facts about what is going on behind these beautiful walls:
  • 15,000 square foot daycare center
  • 300 seat employee dining commons
  • 298-seat, state-of-the-art, THX-certified screening room equipped for digital projection
  • a massive data center housing a Render farm, file servers and storage systems, allowing computers to process data 24 hours a day, seven days a week to create astounding visual images for movies and games.
