Arc Institute

Palo Alto, CA

A new institution for curiosity-driven biomedical science and technology, this nonprofit research organization operates in partnership with Stanford University, UCSF, and UC Berkeley to accelerate scientific progress.


Occupying space in the Stanford Research Park, this project includes the demolition of an existing two-story office space and the creation of a state-of-the-art life science research lab facility. This facility consists of private and shared office spaces adjacent to the labs, which take up 60% of the building. The labs include cell and tissue culture rooms, cold rooms and a lab support space. This project also includes exterior site upgrades to increase privacy and maximize green space, a full-service kitchen, and the installation of a new service elevator.
