Story

This project involved renovation of an existing 1 million square foot Mall into a new corporate global headquarters for a high tech and innovative IT hosting company called Rackspace.  The design approach was to layer in new architectural elements to define highly collaborative work zones that would stimulate "Rackers" culture and project the Rackspace brand of "Fanatical Support".  The existing building infrastructure was exposed and integrated with new architectural forms and patterns to provide a renewed image.  Selection of materials and systems were about sustainability and identified for LEED Gold Certification.
