Judges commented on how well-designed the facility is and the striking aesthetics of the project.
One of the client’s goals was to create a piece of architecture that would enhance the marketing of Tahitian Noni Juice. As such, the tallest, largest and heaviest Tilt-Up panel, seen from the neighboring highway, contains a 16-foot wide by 20-foot high cast-art piece that is similar to the Tahitian Noni’s bottle label.
Requirements to keep portions of the building open and transparent necessitated that the Tilt-Up panels be designed to interact with braced frames at glazed area in order to provide one unified seismic resistant system.
Selected for its reputation as a durable and economical construction method, the Tilt-Up facility was complemented by other building materials to showcase the different functions housed within the structure. For example, red brick frames enclose the offices, glazed curtain walls house research development and a curved metal roof protects a viewing/visitors’ gallery.
