This month, we talk to Melissa Wallin, principal and chief executive of Design Blitz, a dynamic group of young, creative architects and designers obsessed with creating really cool, flexible environments that are fresh and innovative. Design Blitz is based in San Francisco.

I would paint the town in … Kelly-Moore Defense – the most perfect shade of charcoal grey.

The office design of my dreams features … pugs and espresso.

Desk lamps are … necessary evils.

When I am at work I listen to … Frank Sinatra or P!nk, which is why I’m not allowed to be the office DJ!

Offices in San Francisco are … setting the benchmark for what modern, multidisciplinary, resource-optimised workplaces look like.
