An administration center where new ideas take flight.


The Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) manages the operations of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) and Willow Run Airport, which together make up one of the world’s leading air transportation hubs. The WCAA developed a new facility connected to DTW’s North Terminal where their management and administration teams can connect and collaborate to take both airports to new heights.

Tailoring the Solution

A dynamic space infused with natural light.

We worked closely with the WCAA to design a dynamic work environment for their staff of more than 200 employees. The office features a series of formal and informal meeting spaces, low partition workstations, and a fitness center. A central open atrium space connects each floor to a centralized hub that features a coffee station and informal teaming area, and infuses the middle of the building with natural light.

The exterior design consists of a metal panel wall system and continuous ribbon window to complement the architectural style of the adjacent North Terminal at DTW. Additionally, we designed the facility’s mechanical system to tie into the airport’s central energy plant.

    Supporting What Matters

    A sustainable and secure workplace.

    Our design considered modern workplace best practices, security concerns, and sustainable principles – the LEED certified facility was designed to align with the WCAA’s “Green Initiative”.
