HED as Interior Architects

Furthering its resolution to become “the leader in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience, and data and analytics,” Ford has deepened its investment in Palo Alto, renovating two previously vacant buildings to significantly expand its existing Research and Innovation Center. Flexible and collaborative, the redesign reflects the unique ecosystem of Silicon Valley itself—dynamic. Relationship-based. Future-focused, and driven.

With its opening, the newly expanded Research and Innovation Center doubled Ford’s Palo Alto workforce, and created more than five times the square footage of the original campus. Today, it stands as yet another powerful signifier of Ford’s commitment to advance—and lead—the smart mobility market.

This project has achieved LEED Gold certification.
