On February 22, 2018, the team at Gunderson Direct, a direct mail marketing company who handle contracts with notable companies such as Wells Fargo and Postmates, moved into their brand-new office designed by TECTA Associates, a San Francisco based architecture and interior design firm.


Gunderson Direct’s new office is located at 1275 A Street, Hayward, California 94541. The TECTA associates team was lead by Principal Architect Ahmad Mohazab along with Design Manager Alina Cherny, and Project Coordinator Anjeeta Maharaj.  The team created a light, modern office space by raising the ceiling height in the main open office area and used large format TechZone ceiling panels by Armstrong, an integrated ceiling system that organizes the technical services that penetrate the ceiling into narrow linear technical zones, which create a more monolithic, uncluttered ceiling, which a contemporary space demands. To further elevate the look, TECTA used two types of ceiling panels, a light wood for the large main office and a conference room and a clear smooth white for the rest of the space.


The office features sliding barn doors for private offices and conference room. Additionally, the space features LEED certified materials such as decorative carved Plyboo panels, LED lights throughout and composite countertops.  Furthermore, the design team utilized Gunderson Direct’s signature orange color and complimented it with the comfortable pallet of whites, grays, and light wood finished. This was achieved in accordance with LEED standards with the use of low VOC paints.
