This utility company’s headquarters meets industrial as well as administrative and customer service requirements. In order to mitigate the uncompromising industrial character of the program, a large open lobby occupies the entire ground level, extending up to a third-floor skylight that bathes the interior in natural light. The elevated walkways that cross the irregularly shaped atrium facilitate circulation without interrupting vistas within the large interior space. The arrangement of functional spaces, which seem to float within this volume, creates the impression of a horizontal tower whose principal glazing is on its roof rather than its façades. The skylight constitutes an enormous single window framing an extensive array of suspended plantings.
