After a look at Allen & Gerritsen's Watertown, Mass. lair, we headed to the West Coast to check out the loft-style space inhabited by the creatives at DOJO, a 2-year-old shop founded by industry veterans Mauro Alencar and Geoff Edwards.

The space occupies three floors (with a planned expansion) of a historic building in San Francisco's Ad Ghetto, plus a rooftop deck with 360-degree views of the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower, Transamerica Pyramid and even Alcatraz Island. The chic shared creative space helps its staff work closely together for clients like LG and Logitech. Its subterranean play room helps them unwind.

Mr. Alencar takes us on a tour of the space, shows us his sunny office view and even tells us the story of the agency's "chicken table." (Hint: it's not what you think.)
