The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing is this Saturday!🌕✨ In honor of this historic space flight, take a look into @nasa ’s Johnson Space Center’s Space Medical Clinic. The clinic serves NASA astronauts in pre and post flight diagnostics as well as Johnson Space Center employees. The sleek, high-tech nature of the embossed, copper-colored metal is inspired by the activities of NASA’s campus. Our design also implemented universal exam rooms that are flexible based on diagnostic and patient needs—it’s a clinic for the future. The building is featured in the documentary “Beyond a Year in Space,” following astronaut Scott Kelly’s return to earth and NASA’s twin study. #apollo11 #outerspace #scitechdesign

For Financial Conduct Authority, we created a next-generation office design that supports the company’s agile and collaborative workstyle. Relocating a staff of around 4,000 people is no easy task. The 15-story building in Stratford unites all London staff under one roof for the first time. It offers employees a diverse mix of facilities and an range of inspiring interior spaces for individuals and teams to come together. We’re also thrilled to share this project has been shortlisted for INSIDE Festival’s 2019 awards.

It is with profound sorrow that we share the news of Phil Freelon’s passing. Phil was committed to designing a socially equitable world. Over his 42-year career, Phil broke down socioeconomic and cultural barriers in architecture and design. Phil’s lifelong dedication to designing places that express the spirit of community, promote cultural equity, and create positive social change has left a significant impact on us.
While we are filled with sorrow over the passing of our beloved friend, we are also overflowing with gratitude for having known, collaborated with, and learned from him. Phil’s legacy will live on in our hearts and memories; in the spirit of his family; in the communities he so passionately served; and in the scores of beautiful and uplifting places he designed to stand tall and proud—just like him. We’ve shared more on his legacy in the link in our bio.

When our @perkinswill_miami studio was enlisted to design this financial services company’s new Florida regional headquarters, we were tasked with creating an open, light-filled, vibrant workplace that would connect its employees with nature to optimize their well-being. We chose a sleek, modern glass exterior to provide floor-to-ceiling views of the lush green landscape. A variety of spaces give employees greater flexibility to work how and where they're most comfortable. And, we also integrated the company's own brand patterns with representations of local South Florida plant material. #headquarters #architecture #architecturaldetail #brandedenvironments

The garden is farmed by our Dallas teammates, and when the veggies are ready for picking, they get to bring the produce home with them!

The Pavilion at Great Northern Way in Vancouver, BC, is sure to become a landmark attraction within the new poly-technic campus. Both an art sculpture and building, the Pavilion will serve as a food, beverage, and retail venue for @nemesis.coffee. The form and massing take inspiration from overlapping flower petals that culminate to form a glazed oculus, flooding the interior with diffused natural light. Its round footprint is designed to engage with people from all sides. 📷 by @emaphotographi #vancouverdesign #wooddesign #architecture #arch

When it came to creating the new headquarters for SailPoint Technologies in Austin, Texas, our @perkinswill_atx studio drew inspiration from the brand’s identity and dedication to providing flexibility in the workplace. Spread across four floors, the new headquarters features an open concept layout with multiple collaboration spaces. Valuing the employee experience, there is ample space for employees to step away from their desks for fresh perspectives, as well as refuel and relax with a coffee bar and casual dining area. The design team played homage to the company’s name and logo with nautical elements, referencing materials related to sailing, such as ship-lap boards and marine ropes, to create a fun, yet polished working environment. 📷 by @petermolick #interiordesign #austindesign #workplacedesign #branding #officedesign
