    Project Size

  • 35,000 SF

This project involved the design of a new corporate headquarters and proof of concept demo center. This local IT company is one of Dell Premier’s top ten partners in the United States. This project included a renovation of 15,000 SF of office space and a 20,000 SF addition for the company’s integration and logistics facility. The design complements the style and function of the company’s motto: “Simplify IT”. 

The entry canopy and lobby area were framed by overlapping ceiling planes in a design that was derived from their company brand. These concave forms also extend into the walls and millwork, welcoming visitors as well as accentuating the server visibility to the lobby and conference room. The breakroom and outdoor patio area invite employees to relax with playful lighting and banquette seating. Lighting was strategically placed in large impact areas such as the conference room, break room, and collaboration areas.

The workstations are located adjacent to the large windows, allowing maximum natural light to the employees. The executive office is centrally located with a large glass wall, allowing accessibility and visibility.
