San Carlos Life Science Campus

The Center for Life Science will soon be a hub for bio-technology research and development offices with alluring amenities and a sprawling landscape. RSM Design focused on expanding the brand presence of this 10 building campus, which is spread across two parcels. The design team is also working to connect the Center for Life Science campus into a holistic identity and wayfinding program. Additionally, RSM Design was involved with the creation of parking garage graphics on site. These structures are a visitor’s first impression to the project, so it was important that the design gave way to a strong sense of arrival. The abstract patterning within the signage components tie back to the biotech and medical background of the space, while maintaining a timeless and modern aesthetic to fulfill the ultimate goal of unifying the campus. Working with the the real estate team and multiple architectural and landscape consultants, RSM Design worked with all disciplines to create an integrated system.
