The MODA Sorrento amenity building is a transformation of the pre-existing office building into a modern, energy-efficient space that maximizes daylight, promotes employee wellness, and encourages innovation and collaboration between the biotech companies operating on the campus. Designed to feel like a Palm Springs desert retreat, furnishings and accessories evoke warmth and include many natural materials, wood tones, and relaxing colors.
A 45-foot wide Schweiss bifold door draws guests into a cozy cafe/lounge from the expansive patio. A large art piece by Claudy Johnstra, made with renewable and natural wool felt and dyed with sustainably grown plants, hangs over the cafe area, highlighted by specialty light features. Cafe materials, textures, and colors create a comforting ambience to transition from the workplace, gather, and play. Adjacent to the cafe, a sport simulator with projection and seating is enclosed by a custom-designed box of alder wood and fiberglass I-mesh screen in a traditional rattan pattern that provides privacy, security, and sound control, yet also creates a sense of openness, allowing light and visibility inside from surrounding spaces. The amenity building also includes a divisible training room for social events and company gatherings, an indoor/outdoor fitness center, and locker/shower rooms.
