One of the most rewarding parts of helping businesses find the perfect space for their teams is watching them progress and grow over the years, and Smashtech is the perfect example! We first showcased their imaginative office in 2017. Fast forward to 2019, when they recently relocated their headquarters to the 33rd floor of a high-rise, and it turned out fantastic. All I can say is WOW!
Smashtech creates eCommerce health and wellness brands, with a mission to provide world class products and customer experiences to consumers online. They focus on their customers, provide real value, foster relationships and put their customers’ needs first. Not only is their office innovative in itself, but it is one of the most detailed, modern, wow-worthy spaces I have ever seen!
When you first step off the elevator, you feel as though you are transported to a red-carpet affair. The pink neon lights add a fun pop of color as you enter the reception area, which also illuminate Smashtech’s logo that is proudly displayed behind the front desk. Talk about first impressions!
Fun pendant lights hang from the ceiling and gold accents are featured throughout the space. Modern, black and brown furniture adds the perfect touch to complement the polished concrete floors and plays off of the industrial yet sleek feel throughout the office.
And can we talk about the view?! The space is lined with windows that have views that span from the mountains to the ocean. Breathtaking views are also seen from their glass enclosed conference room. It’s the perfect spot for their team to be inspired!
The office has open workstations, allowing departments to collaborate on new ideas. An open kitchen also acts as a space where the team can take a break and engage in some friendly games of foosball, ping pong or billiards.
Smashtech knows the key to success is a happy team, and we are proud of them for being named a Top Company Culture by Entrepreneur, a Best Place to Work by San Diego Business Journal, along with many other accolades from local and national publications.
Their space definitely exudes their appreciation for their team, and in their own words, their team is the best reflection of their culture.
Congratulations to Smashtech for their amazing space! We cannot wait to see where the future takes you!
