Currently under construction, this modern three-story office building maximizes views while blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Integrating architecture and structural engineering allowed the architect to minimize concrete walls on the exterior in favor of large expanses of glass, which enhance views and natural light for a better work environment while reducing unwanted seismic mass. Large overhangs, canopies and awnings help cool and protect the building for added energy savings.
An 18-foot by 40-foot central atrium filters light to the interior, while exposed Tilt-Up concrete walls inside the building help to define space and act as shear walls to resist seismic forces. The building's irregular floor plan and varying wall heights create a variety of interesting spaces that showcase the versatility of Tilt-Up construction.
