Although the majority of the structure Powers Brown Architecture designed for General Technologies was intended for manufacturing, a portion of the building would also house office space, so the owners sought a design that went beyond the typical “big box” warehouse treatment. However, they needed to achieve this goal within a limited budget, making Tilt-Up the natural choice.
To delineate the office from the rest of the building, Powers Brown created an oversized Tilt-Up cornice, supported at varying heights by Tilt-Up columns. The same element is repeated on a smaller scale as a light fixture in the lobby.
The office façade and entrance also feature a masonry veneer that further differentiates them from the manufacturing space.
