|Description:||Located on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the project is organized around the concept of the “open road” which is the spirit of the corporate brand. The “open road” connects the site, the communal social and training areas and the office to this dramatic and expansive site.
This road passes through the central core of the project which serves as the central hub for the open office “loft” design. The core area contains employee support, service, amenities, and conference areas. It recalls traditional Western architecture and planning. The upper two floors of this project are for flexible open office areas and ground floor contains employee amenities such as cafeteria, fitness and training as well as the computer infrastructure required for the operations. The center can be opened up for corporate and social events such as the biannual corporate town hall meetings and social events like motorcycle road rallies. These areas connect to outdoor courts and plazas to engage all aspects of the site into creating a stronger corporate community.
The language of the Architecture focuses on a monumental simplicity which merges this development to this dramatic landscape creating a larger sense of presence and permanence.
The building area for this project was 98,000 GSF and materials used included steel frame, tilt up concrete panels, aluminum windows, curtain wall and sunshades.
