This contemporary facility for Henke Sass Wolf of America is the national headquarters for a world leading medical endoscope development and manufacturing corporation. This two story office structure and one story manufacturing space represent a successful integration of office and manufacturing functions. The south facing corporate offices are open to a two story semi-translucent skylight overlooking the core manufacturing and assembly area. Through its careful placement, a large central skylight element helps to organize and unify the programmatic elements of executives, engineering supervisors, and assembly technicians. Upon arrival, the entry is identified by a skewed corporate board room shrouded in jewel-like reflective glass walls, located directly above the recessed entrance. This elegant structure fulfills all necessary requirements in a cost effective, energy efficient architectural solution.
