International Business Park
Design: Morrison Seifert Murphy
Architect: Lionel Morrison, FAIA
Location: Carrollton, Texas, USA
With this project we were afforded the opportunity to master plan a 40 acre site for five, low-rise office buildings. To optimize the significance of this assemblage of necessarily modest buildings we developed a master plan wherein the individual buildings communicated with one another in a synergistic way. This strategy resulted a more important and discernable whole.
The buildings are arranged about three major axes formed by drives and lines of trees. Each axis terminates into the lobby of one of the buildings and enhances the sense of cohesion among the buildings and elevates their stature.
The buildings are rendered in white concrete. The three story buildings employ exposed concrete frames while the two story structures use site-cast concrete panels with similar fenestration.
Each building lobby is treated as an art gallery with pieces commissioned specifically for those spaces. A required, water detention area is located in the center of the assembly and serves the added role of sculpture garden and organizing green space.
