The Kapor Center needed a new collaborative workspace to carry out their mission, which is to&nbsp;improve access to opportunity and stronger influence for historically underrepresented communities through investing in information technology and partnerships with like-minded nonprofits.&nbsp;

Fougeron transformed the existing 1920s office building into a new workspace for the Center and its partner organizations. “The new headquarters had to be an architectural manifestation of the Kapor Center’s core values: connectivity, openness, and democracy,” the architects describe. Based on those values, the new Center's design is modern and harmonious, featuring open, flexible workspaces that are fit for collaboration.
