A Glam Look Inside of Looker

By Studio Hatch

[Santa Cruz Tech Beat editor’s note: “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”]

looker-headerA fundamental value at Looker Data is its unique staff culture. With a design driven by employee lifestyle, their 12,700 square foot space was completely transformed to truly embody the local flavor of their hometown, Santa Cruz, California: a laid back and picturesque surf town with a hip, urban vibe.



Building Community

As hosts of weekly happy hour shindigs and regular community events, Looker requested an inviting and unique social space on par with their favorite local bars and hangouts. The full bar with custom banquette seating area and locally made communal table is fully equipped to accommodate all-hands meetings by day, and serves as a moody backdrop to hip social gatherings by night.
