K1 Investment Case Study

A leading private equity firm focusing on high-growth enterprise software companies from around the globe.

The LA-based company has a growing list of leading-edge clients and a brand-new headquarters in Manhattan Beach.

When it comes to office aesthetics, K1 Investments taps into future-forward design and premium, innovative security to appeal to its high-tech client base.


With a growing list of enterprise software clients, an important part of K1’s continued success depends on making a stellar first impression—and keeping private information protected. With many different types of spaces requiring varying levels of access and security, including open layouts, indoor/outdoor communal areas, and private touchdown rooms, their access control management needs to be secure, customizable and available remotely 24/7 to accommodate door entry even when no one is physically in the office. Most of all, they wanted to create a high-tech, future-oriented space that’s as functional as it is beautiful.

Access made beautiful
