The architects felt it was important to not just create another office/industrial building. Rather they wanted to approach this design being sensitive to the relationship of the new building with its surrounding environment. They wanted to avoid designing simply a decorated shed of a particularly extroverted building. Their concerns were to creatively incorporate a high interior spatial quality with the importance of the exterior sensitivity, all within the client’s budget.
