The 75,000-sq-ft Clif Bar & Co. headquarters transformed a World War II valve manufacturing facility into a workplace tailored for the outdoor enthusiasts who run Clif Bar, a leading maker of organic nutrition foods and snacks.

The project is on track to receive LEED-Platinum certification and features an open office working environment, research and development kitchen, employee wellness area, onsite child care, theater space and a cafe. According to design firm ZGF Architects, the space functions as a medium to tell Clif Bar's story of community and stewardship and to demonstrate and promote green design strategies that reduce its environmental footprint.
