This 2017 Grand Aurora award-winning design provides the construction firm who’s headquartered here ample space to work, be creative and efficient. The construction of the building consists of masonry walls and steel frames for the exterior framing. The steel framing allows for the large storefront systems which are integral to the natural lighting in the building.
From the Architect:
The design employs an asymmetrical series of glass and aluminum storefronts with pent roofs, the tallest one serving as the building’s main entrance. The pitch of the roofs provides space for north-facing clerestory windows that add indirect daylight without the glare and heat gain of traditional skylights. This pent roof design is even echoed on the matching storage building out back; the roofs all face south to accommodate future solar PVs.
