As You Sow | Oakland

Environmental and socially responsible non-profit law firm, As You Sow, moved their offices across the Bay to bustling downtown Oakland in the summer of 2012.  Once again Astrid Design Studio was called in to design a large mundane space into an eclectic and vibrant office.  All the furniture from their San Francisco office were re-used and all additional pieces were sourced second hand, aligning with the style of the of their staff. Spaces were creatively re-purposed to accommodate As You Sow’s growing staff and intern capacity.

Designing with reused office furniture, no VOC paint and up-cycled decor, the As You Sow office’s align with their environmental ethics.


Designing an elegant office space, juxtaposed by various styles of furniture seamlessly create a zen work space.



Highlighting mementos from trips abroad against an ocher backdrop, every office speaks of each employee’s style.



A sophisticated intern work space made, with reclaimed redwood desks and reused desk chairs against a concord colored wall, makes for a fun day at the office!
