A landmark, single-user building in Newport Beach’s Marina Lido Village has been completely redesigned for its occupant, business software company SAP, who will use the new space for its Southern California-based Innovation Center and HanaHaus.

The building, located at 3366 Via Lido, is owned by Burnham-Ward Properties. The redesign was done by H. Hendy Associates (Hendy), an interior architecture and planning firm.

Designed to be a beacon for innovation and creativity, the workspace seamlessly blends two segments – a dynamic coworking environment open to the public, and a research and development center for the company – for the first time since inception. The 16k sf collaborative workspace will serve Orange County’s thinkers, makers and innovators and bring an unconventional and creative workspace experience to the region.

The building was initially developed as Newport Balboa Savings Bank in the early 1950s, offering clients a yacht-in banking experience. Today, the property gives SAP access to local businesses and top research institutions and is comprised of two spaces. HanaHaus serves local entrepreneurs, idealists, capitalists, students and those with a passion for creativity. SAP Innovation Center is home to the company’s Southern California-based researchers, engineers, designers and developers.

HanaHaus, the brainchild of Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner, co-founder of SAP and chairman of the Supervisory Board, serves as an iconic destination where ideas and capital can connect. Building off SAP’s successful flagship in Palo Alto, HanaHaus was built on the notion that great ideas can spring from anywhere and features myriad indoor and outdoor workspaces infused with the latest technology and functional design. With the goal to connect industry peers, clients, and like-minded individuals, HanaHaus also transforms into a public event space for workshops, TED-style talks, lectures and more.

To bring HanaHaus to life, the design team applied the “design thinking” methodology – a human-centered approach to problem solving and key component of SAP’s DNA. This strategy enabled Hendy to extract key insights that were used to program every inch of the space. Journey maps, which incorporated movement patterns of SAP employees and HanaHaus patrons and visitors also were studied and used to inform the flow, layout and workspaces of each user type. Complete with a two-story volume open seating area, HanaHaus features conference and focus rooms and on-demand workspaces of all sizes enabling users to collaborate and ideate around every corner.

“Situated in the heart of Southern California’s ecosystem – an ever-growing technology hub – Newport Beach is the perfect destination to expand our footprint,” said Daniel Zimmer, head of ecosystem, SAP Labs US. “Our new space is grounded in design thinking and delivers on our promise to bring people together through innovative and vibrant workspaces where they can connect, explore new ideas and turn their visions into reality.”

To fuel its idea makers, HanaHaus also brings Orange County its first Blue Bottle Coffee shop and features a full menu of world-famous artesian coffee and a variety of snack options.

Now open and serving Orange County’s innovators, SAP Innovation Center and HanaHaus is home to notable entrepreneurs and local businesses including Red Bull, Porsche Design, Lululemon, Drunk Elephant and more.
