| INTERIOR DESIGN | Redtail Technology ARCHITECT: RMW ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS / INTERIOR DESIGNER: RMW ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS / FURNISHING COMPANY: VCO / GENERAL CONTRACTOR: MARKET ONE BUILDERS Redtail Technology completed renovating its Sacramento headquarters in 2017, a 28,000-square-foot space in two ware- houses that were formerly separated by a concrete wall, now joined by a seamless Herculite glass door. Designed to reflect the company’s brand and playful culture, Redtail’s lobby incorporates red accents of its logo and uses sharp, dramatic lines and geometric patterns “meant to interpret the heartbeat of technology and how it’s always shifting,” says Amber Kelly of RMW Archi- tecture & Interiors, which designed the space. Named after CEO Brian McLaugh- lin’s red-tailed golden retriever, Redtail also encourages employees to bring their dogs to the office and partners with Front Street Animal Shelter to foster a dog for the office, “though an employee always ends up adopting the dog,” says Kelly. Redtail’s otherwise open, breakaway work space was created with tall tables to encourage collaboration and designed with lighter col- ors to create a natural separation from the lobby. A mezzanine with dimmed lighting and hammocks offers employees more pri- vacy, and a steel slide provides a quick de- scent. For additional relaxation and repose, Redtail’s red-accented game room — from the cushions on the couch to the tips of the ceiling fan — offers employees an opportu- nity to bounce pingpong balls or wave the controls of a Wii, while enjoying a fun and colorful mural by Berkeley-based artist Ni- gel Sussman. n April 2019 | 87
