AKA HOLY COW, ARE THOSE OFFICES?!
When you have a project as massively cool and unique as this (seriously, scroll through the pictures), you need workspace design and furniture to match.
W.L. Gore knew AOE could provide.
Gore needed new lab and office space that could fit into their existing manufacturing facility. With tight space, low ceilings, and nearby sensitive equipment, architect Clark Design Group suggested a unique pre-fabricated solution using recycled shipping containers that allows for two levels: ground level for a lab and the mezzanine level for office space with clear views down to the process area, it was really important to be able to visually communicate with the production floor.
Our team worked closely with Clark Design Group during the design process to ensure the solution adhered to W. L. Gore’s branding, and devised furniture solutions that would fit efficiently within the fixed restraints of the shipping containers.
The result was nothing short of marvelous. Gore thought so, too; they have told us that their employees love working in their new space!
