Funny or Die Pinterest Three firms collaborate on a San Francisco headquarters-and employees make it their own Clive Wilkinson helps an online entertainment company expand without losing its soul By Lydia Lee Photography by Naho Kubota and Eddy Joaquim 78 Pinterest is a website that enables people to share their love of design: Everyone can be a tastemaker or style guru of their particular passion. Given the diversity of visions represented on the website, it is fitting that Pinterest's own San Francisco headquarters would begin with a backdrop created by three separate architects from New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco-and then be quickly transformed by employee "hacks," i.e. DIY customizations and modifications. The final result is a joyous jumble of ideas that matches the site's identity as a freewheeling place to explore whatever catches one's eye. Evan Sharp, co-founder of Pinterest, was studying architecture at Columbia when he began collaborating with two friends to build a tool for curating photo collections. After this side project took off, Sharp asked his former studio professor Janette Kim, who also has her own practice named All of the Above, to design Pinterest's first contractdesign.com June 2014 contract Early Hollywood was a scrappy place where fly-by-night studios filmed on street corners and movies were often a flash in the pan. That more or less described the viral video internet production company Funny or Die until success and expansion inspired a recent move into a new, playfully creative office designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects. Fittingly, Wilkinson even describes the aesthetic of the 25,000-square-foot space as "scrappy," with many design moves derived from the company's on-the-fly mentality, in which writers and producers instantly respond to daily events with web-based shorts often featuring celebrities in irreverent situations. "Coming into a building that was innately corporate, we wanted to do something that would emphasize life being in process, rather than finished," Wilkinson says. "The visual interest of the space comes from this unprocessed look." Funny or Die occupies two floors with a dedicated entrance in a glassy new building recently opened on The Lot, a historic studio in West Hollywood, California. The first-floor lobby establishes the casual tone, almost like a basement rumpus room for rowdy teenagers, with walls clad in unfinished pegboard and hung with pictures and gold antlers, a particleboard desk, unfinished concrete floors and structural By Russell Fortmeyer Photography by Nico Marques/Photekt The bright yellow walls partially enclosing the kitchen contrast the raw look of exposed steel studs on the walls surrounding a conference room. 86 contractdesign.com june 2014 Pinterest (page 78) True Global Design.
