While there are many shared workspaces in San Francisco, from Wework to the Founders Den, none of them are quite as stylish as Pacific Heights’ Canopy. The officespace, that opened in fall 2016, was founded by Steve Mohebi, Yves Behar, and Amir Mortazavi. With black marble, hexagon-shaped tables, and natural lighting, it’s an impeccably designed space. It was an instant success, so it’s no surprise that the trio have announced the brand’s expansion. A second Canopy will open in Jackson Square in spring 2018. “Over the past year, Canopy has attracted a dynamic community that feels a genuine affinity for one another and has made us a special part of their personal brands,” Mortazavi said in a statement. “We look forward to building upon this community and welcoming an equally diverse set of creators, thinkers, builders and innovators to Canopy Jackson Square.”

On the corner of Columbus Street and Pacific Avenue, the new Canopy is much larger than the original location—with 11,000 square feet of premium space. Up to 250 members will work in a distraction-free environment that is sophisticated, serene, and contemporary. The office features a unique 1,500-square foot outdoor terrace with views of the downtown San Francisco skyline. There will be 23 private, sound-proof offices, for one to 16 people, as well as private desks and shared workspaces. Other offerings? Concierge-style amenities, a mother’s room, 14-person board room, private phone booths, three additional conference rooms, 24-hour access, and tech support.

Designed by Behar and Mortazavi from the ground up, the new space features local materials, state-of-the-art technologies, and cutting edge architecture. “Canopy Jackson Square is designed to combine spacious private work spaces with thoughtful social lounges for collaboration,” Behar said in the statement. “The design intent is to add a striking new idea for what work is within the North Beach iconic neighborhood. The triangular floorplan has private linear office on two sides, with a central organic lounge space that functions as a social forest canopy made of a vertical and overhead fanning geometry and organic seating.”

Canopy will be filled with the latest in office furnishings from Herman Miller including Sayl chairs, Public Office Landscape desk system (designed by Behar), Chadwick modular seating, Renew sit-to-stand desks, and Eames Eiffel molded plywood chairs. The vintage lights are by Preben Dahl; the intricately patterned porcelain tiling is by the Bouroullec brothers, Barber and Osgerby for Mutina, and Formafantasma for Cedit Ceramiche; smart locks by August; and the sound-proof aluminum and glass partitions are by Modernus.

Members are invited to an assortment of events and programming. Past events involved a trunk show with Cuyana, a panel discussion led by Amour Vert, and a women-only book talk with Kim Scott. The office is stocked with goodies for members to enjoy—Blue Bottle Coffee, Pique Tea, Sodastream sparkling tap water, catering from local restaurants and cafés, and a selection of desktop accessories and tech essentials. Membership tiers vary, with a monthly shared table starting at $250 and a private office at $1800. “We continue to see strong demand for our premium memberships from a diverse blend of industries, particularly from female founders and executives who appreciate our gender balanced community,” Mortazavi explained. “We are excited to continue to meet the unmet needs of these accomplished and aspirational professionals in our upcoming wave of growth.”
