Palo Alto, California (1997)
The store in Palo Alto is the first location on the west coast and the first in a stand-alone location. Previous stores have been located within an existing retail location, such as the Westchester Mall in White Plains, NY. The location is within a building previously occupied by a bank.
Approximately 6,000 square feet of the store includes over 42 computer stations, a coffee and wine bar, and computer-generated virtual reality games. Each of the computer stations is housed within special casework designed for the store. At least one YSA principal participated as design architect, supervising architect and/or architect-of-record for this project.
