Aside from its cost-effectiveness and concrete accessibility, Tilt-Up was selected for this project in an effort to blend steel frame construction with glazed and metal cladding, creating a multitude of architectural and thematic possibilities.
Because of the awkward site shape, buildings were organized along a linear vehicular and pedestrian circulation route and were grouped in such a way to generate a “campus” environment. A definitive curved wall was chosen to unite all aspects of the design problem and fulfill the feeling of a campus setting.
Awarded “Office Project of the Year” by The Sacramento Business Journal, the success of this project is attributed to various architectural components such as the articulation of the solid versus void juxtaposition in the punctuated concrete panels with glazed fenestration.
Additionally, the concrete versus glass dichotomy is articulated through the combination of solid concrete panel walls to glazed walls. Spandrel glass is distinctively displayed throughout the building and aluminum cladding surrounding all exterior columns.
The building also features powerful recessed entries that are augmented by vertical columns, doubling as way-finding identification.
