There are a lot of design considerations that should be respected while designing an office building. CAS designers have definitely managed to capture the functional, pragmatic and visual essence of the office space in this particular building in Michigan, USA. The GBC office building houses 1600 employees and the client wanted a design that could seamlessly conform with the community and enhance collaboration. The CAS team responded by proposing an office building design that features an instantly attractive façade with some major eco-friendly elements. The building is multistory, and each level recedes a bit back, showing a belt of green grass. The ground floor has been reserved for public activities and accommodates a lobby, café and a few stores while the basement holds the parking lot.
The office space boasts a total of seven floors, and the internal layout is versatile enough to accommodate several forms of offices. There are three utility and infrastructure cores in the building, which help balance the indoor traffic flow.
