Rose Foundation | Oakland

The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment is a grant-making public charity. It nurtures positive interactions between communities, the environment and the economy through grant-making, research and advocacy.

The Rose Foundation moved from their intimate setting of two Berkeley apartments, after 18 years, to a highrise in downtown Oakland.

Combining as much of their original furniture as possible with second-hand furniture, the Rose Foundation maintained the non-corporate vibe they desired. Working within the perimeters of a tight budget, Astrid Design Studio pushed the creative limits and designed a space that is fresh and bright all while providing the needs for this growing organization.
