Metal wall panels and exposed structural steel support company’s vision
As MINDBODY, a business management software company, began growing in both the clients it serve and the size of its staff, it became apparent a new headquarters was needed to anchor its campus of existing offices in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
Founded by Rick Stollmeyer, CEO, in 1998, MINDBODY serves the needs of health, wellness and beauty professionals around the world. The company provides services, which include web scheduling tools, automated marketing and point-of-sale processing for small businesses such as yoga studios, fitness centers and spas.
San Luis Obispo-based RRM Design Group developed the master plan concepts for the 60,000-square-foot, two-story headquarters and four-story parking garage. A large entry plaza functions as an outdoor meeting space for the entire campus. Inside, upper floor walkways overlook the atrium lobby, a high-volume space with comfortable seating. Iconic architectural features sit along the main entry drive to help identify the campus, which also includes landscaped pathways that connect the existing and new office buildings.
