Atlas Box & Crating

Location: Sutton MA
Area: 225,000 sf

Atlas Box World Headquarters is home to an international corporation specializing in the design and manufacturing of specialized shipping and storage containers. In order to recognize the needs for future energy savings and efficiency, this large scale facility is designed with densely insulated wall assemblies and cool roof technology. The focal point of this building is its sweeping west elevation main entrance, highly visible from the adjacent state highway. A welcoming two story main entry unfolds as a dynamic transition between interior and exterior, while allowing sunlight to drench the main visitor and training areas. This is an example of a simple building form serving its intended use while being expressive in its intended architectural effect.
