An adaptive reuse where innovation can flourish.


General Motors’ Atlanta-area IT Innovation Center is housed in a former U.S. Postal Service office complex with an attached, vacant 81,000 SF distribution center. We were tasked with designing the transformation and expansion of this nondescript warehouse into a modern office environment that could accommodate 500+ additional team members while consolidating several remote offices.

Tailoring the Solution

Transforming a warehouse into a workplace.

We developed a design that delivers an open workspace infused with natural light and adds a second-floor mezzanine. Our design breaks up the vast warehouse environment into three neighborhood zones (each accommodating conferencing, collaboration, and support spaces) with a central town commons, mini dealership, and a shipping / receiving area that supports the entire IT Innovation Center. We also repurposed the loading dock bay doors into glass openings for the town commons.

Supporting What Matters

A modern work environment infused with natural light.

The end result is a thoughtfully planned work environment that optimizes the available square footage and embraces a clean, contemporary aesthetic punctuated with bold graphics.
