Acadian Labs
A state of the art scientific facility need be "sterile", architecturally speaking. While the work being done here is complex and often tedious, the spaces in which that work occurs is bright, airy, and provides an appropriate level of visual stimulation to make the day enjoyable. The building in organized into lab, warehouse, and office precincts which engage and overlap one another. In this way those who work in one area- say accounting-feel as much as part of the lab work as do the technicians and scientists. This is a high-tech business, and this building's exterior and interior will utilize forms, interactions, and materiality that will assure a high-tech presence in the community. Using fly-thrus, panoramas, and renderings help to visualize the design as it is refined.
