P+W office up fit in North Carolina

Perkins+Will Office – an architectural office organized by translucent faces of a cube.

The form represents idea–natural skylight is diffused through it to enlighten the surrounding spaces. The faces correspond to aspects of practice and program: Entry, Gallery, Workspace, Lounge, Meeting, and Presentation.

From the central idea, a spine of translucent ceiling panels flow through the remaining space. Regular groups of individual work areas clustered against exterior glass balance the other side of the spine that has collaborative spaces of Library, Pin-up, and Break Room, as well as required support spaces.

The 7,800 SF interior up-fit is intended for 45 Perkins+Will staff. A key element of the program was separate and nearby collaboration spaces of scales of groups from two to fifty. All workspaces are the same size and character, from the Office Director to entry Intern.

There are no closed offices but several shared closed rooms for telephone calls, private discussion, and conference call were created. The shower is shared with the remainder of the floor’s tenants in the interest of being a good neighbor.

In addition to being an example or metaphor of architecture, the space was designed as a technical laboratory for young staff. Ceilings and walls are pulled apart into floating screens, strips and clouds to reveal building infrastructure throughout the space.

The program of the Perkins+Will Architects office includes: lobby seating areas, a display, formal conference spaces; an open work area with informal team rooms and huddle rooms; a model room; pin-up space to display current projects; a work room with plotters and printers and workspace for making boards and models; a lounge, and even a shower.

The Perkins+Will office is Gold Certified under the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) 2.0 rating system. Two basic concepts of sustainability were fundamental to the design: making natural light and outside views available to as much of the space as possible, and creating open, flexible and collaborative spaces that can be re-purposed in the future without significant renovation and resulting waste.
