This two-story 14,000 square foot office building is corporate headquarters for Citation Northern, a residential developer in the region. The company occupies the northern portion of the ground floor while the second floor is dedicated to lease space.
This unique site presented a number of challenges for the design team. The major challenge was a large drainage channel running diagonally through the site dividing it in two. The design team chose to place the building on the western half, adjacent to the residential district with parking and circulation located on the eastern half. The two halves are linked by a pedestrian-bridge.
The residential proportions and exterior material palette reflect the client’s taste and mission as a home builder. The warm color and material palette selected for interior spaces underscores this theme. All offices benefit from optimal day-lighting and views via transparent interior walls which admit natural light into adjacent workspaces.
