Research Triangle Foundation Headquarters
|Project:||RTF Headquarters Building (Concept Study-Site + Interior|
|Client:||Research Triangle Foundation|
|Location:||Research Triangle Park, NC|
|Type:||Office + Workplace|
|Status:||Concept Study Phase Completed 2012|
The main objective of the study was to explore new ways that visitors could interact with the surrounding site and building's public spaces to ultimately define a new visitor experience for the Foundation, creating a vibrant “hub of activity” and destination for businesses in the Park and surrounding community.
The new visitor experience would allow visitors to learn about both the rich history of the Research Triangle Park and the innovation forged by its community of industry-leading businesses since its founding in 1954.
The study considered both non-developed and underutilized exterior spaces and interior public space. It was organized into three parts: Site Activation, Site Concept and Building Public Spaces.
