Technology-driven Company Office
This project is a 13,000 square foot facility comprised of corporate offices and laboratory space. The project involved renovations and additions to a dilapidated two story industrial building, transforming it into the corporate headquarters and testing laboratory for a local family owned company. The design focused on created a contemporary environment that symbolizes the values of a progressive, “technology-driven” company.
Both exterior and interior modifications to the existing building establish a work environment that facilitates collaboration through an open and connective plan that promotes communication and interaction between staff. The office level contains a gallery devoted to the display of Heritage Plastics’ operations and a second dramatic gallery for the display of taxidermy.
Natural light was a major consideration in the development of the project. This led to the transformation of a virtually windowless box into a porous building that provides natural daylight in all spaces. The process of perforating the building included included the development of a new addition at the front corner of the building. This intervention modified the static massing of the original building, providing a dynamic entry sequence and improving the perception of the building from the street.
