EXPENSIFY, A SAN FRANCISCO-BASED TECHNOLOGY COMPANY, DECIDED TO EXPAND ITS OPERATIONS TO PORTLAND AND LOCATE IN THE HISTORIC FIRST NATIONAL BANK BUILDING DOWNTOWN.
been repurposed to serve as private meeting spaces. Through hidden doors, staff can discover and explore the salon, an area offering refuge and refreshments with speakeasy-quality finishes.
ZGF worked closely with the CEO to bring his vision of creating an inspiring workplace environment to life. With a soaring four-story atrium, classic columns, giant bank vaults, extensive marble and glass, and brass fixtures, the Art Deco space is ornate and striking.
A primary design feature is a multilevel staircase-andworkspace structure that utilizes the atrium and invokes the concept of a stout tree with sturdy branches. Flights of wood stairs connecting to upper floors are flanked by brass-clad workspaces—both open and enclosed. This image is reinforced by a suspended chaise that hangs from the lowest workspace, just like a tree swing.
Foregoing traditional workstations, Expensify’s mantra to employees is “choose your own adventure,” which is supported by a work environment with no assigned seating but plenty of comfortable places to work. Options range from lounge seating with soft sofas and chairs, to smaller meeting rooms, to long conference tables that are ideal for larger team efforts. The former bank vaults have 4
HANNA ANDERSSON Headquarters
HANNA ANDERSSON, A PORTLAND-BASED CHILDREN’S CLOTHING COMPANY, ENGAGED WITH ZGF TO RENOVATE 43,400 SF OF SPACE IN ADJACENT TWO-STORY HISTORIC BUILDINGS IN PORTLAND FOR ITS HEADQUARTERS.
The transformed space speaks to the company’s culture of collaboration and innovation with the key driver in the design being openness and transparency. The new layout allows departments to easily and naturally collaborate in the process of design and merchandising. It includes expanded design and conferencing space for 12 departments in an entirely open office environment, while also allowing room for anticipated employee growth and brand evolution in the coming years. The building is comprised of two floors with an open connecting staircase. It is influenced by the brand’s Scandinavian roots of simple, clean lines, natural woods 6
and concrete, and maximized daylight. A backdrop of white walls, reclaimed with a whitewash finish, white Corian countertops, and white laminate and birch workstations serve as a canvas for the brightly colored and patterned textiles that the Hanna Andersson brand is known for. The new office includes areas for the resource library, customer service center, bistro, and catering kitchen with an adjacent event space. Throughout the facility, informal gathering spaces have been created for collaboration. The wall between the two historic buildings was partially removed to provide openness and connectivity. Original Douglas fir columns were stripped and a new ceiling system with exposed ductwork was installed to provide continuity in look and feel across the two buildings.
WASHINGTON TRUST BANK Office Relocation
ZGF SUPPORTED WASHINGTON TRUST, THE OLDEST AND LARGEST PRIVATELY HELD COMMERCIAL BANK IN THE NORTHWEST, TO ESTABLISH A VISION, SPACE PROGRAM, AND TEST FITS FOR ITS PORTLAND OFFICE RELOCATION.
The bank decided to relocate from a historic building into a space that would allow for a more modern but established aesthetic. After analyzing several properties, the bank selected the new Park Avenue West tower in downtown Portland, taking an entire 13,000 SF floor. The new office is home to Wealth Management, Business Banking, and Capital Markets services with two tellers and a customer service desk located at the entry. Floor-to-ceiling windows create a bright and inviting space with panoramic views of the city and river for staff and customers to enjoy. The conference room 10
opens onto the main reception area, allowing the bank to entertain clients and host community events while highlighting the city views. The interiors feature travertine floors and split faced stone on the walls; this is in contrast with elm wood casework and doors, creating an inviting but permanent feel. Private offices for meetings with personal and private banking clients feature transparent glass allowing all staff access to daylight. All office support spaces include high-quality furniture and casegoods with a walnut finish, creating a more traditional feel in the space. Staff and guests can enjoy a shared lounge directly opposite the reception area.
AKRIDGE REAL ESTATE SERVICES / MITSUI FUDOSAN AMERICA 1200 Seventeenth
1200 SEVENTEENTH IN WASHINGTON, DC—A NEW 170,000 SF CLASS-A OFFICE BUILDING DEVELOPED BY AKRIDGE AND MITSUI FUDOSAN AMERICA—WAS PLANNED AND DESIGNED BY ZGF TO RESPOND TO THE GROWING NEED FOR MORE FLEXIBLE AND EFFICIENT WORKING ENVIRONMENTS.
The design takes full advantage of the site’s unique characteristics, which include a highly visible location fronting Rhode Island Avenue NW. The site has a completely unobstructed perimeter on all sides, and offers spectacular views of landmark buildings and urban spaces. The prominent location and site configuration also provide the opportunity for a distinctive architectural statement. It incorporates a historically inspired glazed terra cotta façade, juxtaposed against a modern glass tower that visually 12
connects the neighborhoods. The result is a light, dignified, contemporary property with floor-to-ceiling glass that reflects the material palette and texture of the surrounding historic environment. The twostory building lobby has a highly impactful street presence at 17th and M streets. 1200 Seventeenth includes a full complement of office building amenities, including retail, four levels of below-grade parking, fitness center, rooftop terrace, and two spec suites. Its jewel-box design includes floor-to-ceiling glass and nine-foot finished ceilings enhances the overall work environment through abundant daylight. The LEED Platinum® building is also the recipient of the 2015 Urban Land Institute Washington, Excellence in Office Development Award.
ALLIANCE PARTNERS HSP SoNo–456 North 5th Street
LOCATED BETWEEN THE DOWNTOWN CORE AND NORTHERN LIBERTIES NEIGHBORHOOD IN PHILADELPHIA, THIS PROJECT INCLUDES THE RENOVATION OF A 215,000 SF WAREHOUSE AND A FOUR-STORY TOWER ADDITION TO CREATE A COLLABORATIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT—SONO.
With the goal of making the building an iconic part of the fabric of the City of Philadelphia, ZGF’s conceptual design transforms the existing warehouse façade to include a metal mesh screen—a style continued onto the curtain wall at the four-story addition. The entry is accessible from a public courtyard that includes outdoor café seating and food carts. The heart of the building is a double-height space connected by an amphitheaterstyle stair with visible access to tenant entries, building amenity spaces, and skylights above. A new mezzanine 16
level is naturally daylit by a series of sawtooth skylights. Amenities in the center include a gym, yoga room, conference center, café, bicycle room, concierge, large video display, and locker rooms. The office building is suitable for a variety of tenants, with contiguous lease spaces up to 80,000 SF and the ability for each tenant to customize their own space. Within the tenant spaces, optional mezzanines can be added if second-level lease space is desired. Large floor-to-ceiling windows are integrated into each space to provide light and views to the outdoors. In addition to the architectural design, ZGF provided art direction and experiential design for a variety of visual elements, including logo development; wayfinding; environmental graphics on walls in tenant spaces, the bike room, the reception area, and the gym; and even the café menu.
CLIF BAR & COMPANY Clif Bar Headquarters
THE 75,000 SF CLIF BAR HEADQUARTERS, DESIGNED BY ZGF, TRANSFORMS AN ORIGINAL WORLD WAR II VALVE MANUFACTURING FACILITY INTO A WORKPLACE HAVEN FOR THE OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS AT CLIF BAR & COMPANY, A LEADING MAKER OF ORGANIC SPORTS NUTRITION FOODS AND HEALTHY SNACKS.
The space celebrates the inherent natural light and volumetric space of a repurposed warehouse, while capturing the company culture and connecting employees to the outdoors through “biophilic” interior design. From custom door pulls made from repurposed bike frames to the largest “smart” solar array in North America—which provides most of the office’s electricity needs—the adaptive reuse focuses on Clif Bar’s core values to sustain its brands, its business, its people, its community, and the planet. The project 18
is LEED Platinum® certified for Commercial Interiors. The headquarters features an open office working environment, a research and development kitchen, an employee wellness area, on-site childcare, theater space, and a café. ZGF recently completed an expansion of the headquarters and developed an additional 32,000 SF that includes 180 new workstations, as well as collaborative workspaces with connections to the existing Clif Bar space. Recycled climbing rope art and recycled wood are used throughout the addition to reflect the company lifestyle and culture.
NINTENDO OF AMERICA Headquarters
ZGF DESIGNED THE 280,000 SF HEADQUARTERS TO CONSOLIDATE STAFF IN A HIGHLY FLEXIBLE, FUNCTIONAL, AND SUSTAINABLE MODERN WORK ENVIRONMENT.
The four-story building is located within a 10-acre parklike setting, and houses 650 employees in an efficient, open floor plan. The design maximizes natural daylight and views, minimizes the building’s overall footprint, and appropriately balances Nintendo’s corporate culture and identity as an innovative interactive gaming industry leader. The LEED Gold® building reflects the desire for a high-performance work environment and commitment to socially responsible business practices. Sustainable features include a 75,000 SF naturally-vegetated living roof, an under-floor displacement ventilation system,
recycled and rapidly renewable building materials, and on-site bioswales.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 16
ZGF PROVIDED PROGRAMMING AND DESIGN SERVICES TO TRANSFORM THIS 40,000 SF INTERIOR SPACE TO MEET MICROSOFT’S CURRENT WORKPLACE ADVANTAGE (WPA) 2.0 INITIATIVES.
This renovation project was part of Microsoft’s ongoing transition from a culture of private offices to an open plan, teamwork based workplace environment supported by a range of common spaces. The design concept is based around an open environment segmented into a series of quiet but interactive team “neighborhoods” surrounding collaborative group community activity areas. The plan encourages synergy in accordance with specified guidelines while at the same time incorporating occupant specific features to accommodate the various business units who occupy
the space. The Design-Build project incorporated many of the principles and processes of an Integrated Project Delivery method.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 18
ZGF PROVIDED DESIGN SERVICES FOR THE RENOVATION AND TENANT IMPROVEMENTS TO MICROSOFT BUILDING 18, AN EXISTING THREE STORY, 140,000 SF FACILITY, WITH PRIVATE OFFICES AND LONG CORRIDORS THAT LEAD INTO AN OPEN PLAN, TEAMWORK BASED WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT.
The project’s design goals included enabling agility and speed by removing barriers between people, and providing for choices and flexibility; creating a balance of spaces that support all types of work, from formal to casual, and from team to individual; celebrating achievements and fostering community with dynamic gathering spaces; and embracing the energy of work in process by providing the tools needed for collaboration and innovation. Implementing WPA 2.0, functional teams are organized into neighborhoods of 12 to 18 that 28
share a range of support spaces, including team rooms of varying sizes. Wayfinding is enhanced by a graduated pattern of fiber cement board panels and reinforced by a curved “smile” wall and light tube emanating from branded light boxes. A centrally located, light filled “hub” provides the social heart of the building. It is open to floors above and below, connected by a central stair, and includes kitchen, dining, and informal seating. The bottom floor of the hub includes a highly flexible “workshop” designed to encourage collaboration across feature teams. Each neighborhood is fully reconfigurable with the ability to implement changes coinciding with product launch cycles.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 42
ZGF WORKED AS PART OF AN INTEGRATED DESIGN-BUILD TEAM TO DELIVER MICROSOFTâ€™S BUILDING 42, A 175,760 SF RENOVATED, FOUR-STORY OFFICE BUILDING.
As one of the first Intelligent Workplace (IW) projects, the design team worked closely with user groups to create a program that responds to various workstyles and fosters flexibility and transparency. Organized into neighborhoods by functional group, workspaces include open plan offices surrounded by breakout spaces with a variety of furniture and writable surfaces. Support spaces throughout the building include three themed specialty rooms per floor that encourage interaction and movement, relaxation rooms, and libraries for heads down work. Hubs are located on each floor and include kitchens and informal dining areas. Adjacent to the lobby and near the center of the building, a large 32
common space features dining, recreation, and casual seating. Garage doors allow the space to be partitioned. A communicating central stairway connects all floors with the lobby and spurs spontaneous collaboration. Interiors emphasize materiality and muted colors native to the Pacific Northwest and artwork from the Microsoft Collection.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 44
ZGF DESIGNED THE RENOVATION AND TENANT IMPROVEMENTS FOR MICROSOFT’S BUILDING 44, A 158,000 SF, THREE-STORY BUILDING.
Using Microsoft’s Workplace Advantage 2.0 Design Guidelines, the design team worked closely with the users to hone the size and functional requirements of the open plan, neighborhood team concept, and the extent to which it would provide flexibility with the business unit’s future needs. The interior palette is a modern, industrial interplay of natural Pacific Northwest materiality and pops of whimsy. The work stations are surrounded by a range of support spaces, including conference rooms, focus rooms, and open meeting areas. The lobby features an organic plant wall, eye catching artwork, and a bright blue spiral staircase symbolizing the tenant, Microsoft’s Azure team. 34
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 88
ZGF LED THE 217,000 SF INTERIOR RENOVATION OF MICROSOFT BUILDING 88. THE PROJECT INTEGRATES 750 OFFICES WITH FLEXIBLE COMMUNITY AND TEAM SPACES TO CREATE A HIGHLY COLLABORATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE WORK ENVIRONMENT.
The project integrates 750 offices with flexible community and team spaces to create a highly collaborative and sustainable work environment. The design features enclosed, yet translucent, individual offices interspersed with small “touch down” meeting spaces that are fully-wired to support the high-tech work that takes place within the facility. Teaming areas with work tables, tack surfaces, and white boards encourage creative collaboration; and large “think tanks” that directly connect to kitchenettes create a lounge-like atmosphere for larger impromptu 38
meetings. Demountable wall systems are adaptable to meet the needs of diverse project teams. The interior environment reflects the progressive nature of the building’s inhabitants; salvaged wood tables combine rustic and modern design elements and display the environmental sensitivity that was a priority throughout the project. The project is LEED-Gold certified.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 111
ZGF PROVIDED PLANNING AND DESIGN FOR THE RETROFIT OF BUILDING 111, A 102,000 SF HIGHPERFORMANCE OFFICE SPACE THAT RESPONDS TO MICROSOFT’S ONGOING COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES.
Home to one division of Microsoft’s human resources department focused on the recruitment of college graduates, the design concept is intentionally lively and fun, with a special emphasis on offering public spaces to support the mobile workstation needs, and collaborative and teamwork functions typical of a younger workforce and Microsoft’s unique culture. The renovation included the creation of a central atrium that punctuates all three floors (providing visual connections throughout the building), maximizes access to views and daylighting, 40
and generates an active public space where employees can interact and mingle. Café and social spaces are located along the atrium perimeter to further encourage connection and collaboration, while private work spaces, collaborative meeting spaces, and informal lounges occur on each floor. The project is designed to meet LEED standards and make the most efficient use of space and materials.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION Microsoft Building 115 Second Floor TI
ZGF WORKED WITH MICROSOFT TO EXPLORE AND DEVELOP A NEW WORKPLACE PROTOTYPE DRIVEN BY HIGH-PERFORMANCE, COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVES.
The project includes the transformation of a 28,000 SF single floor from private offices into a dynamic ‘open’ neighborhood environment, which encourages communication and collaboration, while achieving program flexibility. Program components were developed to support a range of work activities and team sizes: unique enclosed and open meeting spaces of various scale (with matching support technologies); distributed team spaces; lounges; and a community ‘hub’ that is comprised of ‘meeting-eating’ spaces, plus an espresso café and kitchen. The design has been tailored to reflect the innovative culture of Microsoft, while maintaining flexibility and balancing 42
a sense of community identity with distinct teamscaled neighborhoods. This design is also reflective of Microsoft’s corporate goals of supporting healthy, productive staff, increasing facility density metrics, and attracting and retaining teams with cross-generational work styles.
DIAMOND FOODS, INC. Innovation Center
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THE DIAMOND FOODS INNOVATION CENTER TO HOUSE THE INNOVATION BUSINESS TEAM AND THE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT TEAM, CENTRALIZING R&D ACTIVITIES THAT SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PRODUCT LINES.
The new 7,350 SF center built of wood attaches to and expands an existing warehouse and shipping facility, creating a new entry for the company’s offices. Atypical for an office and research building, the two-story center is constructed of sustainably sourced wood that is resistant to weather, mold, rot, and insects—the result of a steam-and-pressure treatment that is chemicalfree. The building uses laminated beams for structural support and has clear-coated wood floors throughout, with large windows illuminating the interior and 44
providing views of adjacent wetlands. A thoughtfully designed sight line flows through spaces on the ground floor to a carefully placed window that frames a majestic oak tree growing outside. In addition to the lobby, the ground floor contains a kitchen, an innovation space for developing new products, and a unique sensory / tasting room with special lighting and HVAC systems that neutralize colors, odors, and other sensory input, eliminating distractions for taste-testers sampling new products. The upper floor houses open office space. A challenge with designing an all-wood office building is the four-foot limited floor-to-floor utility space, which required careful layout to accommodate the necessary utilities. The adjacent, restored wetlands, designed by ZGF landscape architects, serves as a naturallycultivated and functional amenity.
SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING COMPANY Signature Office Building
AS PART OF A DESIGN-BUILD TEAM, ZGF DESIGNED THE WORLD’S LARGEST SEMICONDUCTOR COMPANY’S NEW 1,000,000 SF SIGNATURE FACILITY IN HILLSBORO, OREGON. THE SEVEN-STORY MIXED-USE MANUFACTURING AND OFFICE BUILDING IS DESIGNED TO DRIVE INNOVATION, PROVIDE EMPLOYEE COMFORT, AND CREATE A SIGNATURE ARCHITECTURAL PRESENCE THAT SERVES AS A RECRUITING TOOL.
Located on an existing campus, the flagship building supports the expansion of the company’s research and development functions. It features a lobby and an atrium for welcoming and gathering; a cafeteria and coffee bar; state-of-the-art office space with collaborative support areas; a data center; and a fitness center. To encourage the cross-pollination of disciplines and facilitate communication, the design features extensive natural 46
daylighting, as well as warm and inviting materials and finishes. Collaborative spaces dispersed throughout the building are scaled smaller to be comfortable and less formal, providing a range of social settings between the small collaborative spaces and larger community areas within and around the atrium.
GERDING EDLEN DEVELOPMENT COMPANY Twelve | West Mixed-Use Building
RISING 22 STORIES ABOVE PORTLAND, OREGON’S WEST END NEIGHBORHOOD, TWELVE | WEST IS A 550,000 SF BUILDING DESIGNED BY ZGF TO SERVE AS A LABORATORY FOR SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND WORKPLACE STRATEGIES.
The building features street-level retail space, four floors of offices, 17 floors of apartments, and five levels of below-grade parking. As home to ZGF’s headquarters, the 89,184 SF office space serves as both a reflection of the firm’s culture and as a living laboratory to evaluate first-hand how the workplace environment functions and feels. Each floor incorporates an open-plan concept with interior offices that have transparent glass walls to ensure that natural light reaches into the core of the building. Each floor also features alternating interior stairs, with lounge areas to foster employee interaction. The residential units above, referred to as Indigo @ 50
Twelve | West, offer a mix of studios; one-, two-, and three-bedroom units; and three floors of penthouse homes. The interior material palette was specifically chosen to optimize the amount of light entering the homes and varies along with the individual layout options. The building has an eco-roof, rooftop garden, and terrace space, a complete fitness studio, and a theatre. Daylight, views, operable windows, recycled and reclaimed materials, as well as the raised access floor and chilled beams all serve to reduce the material and energy use, and to create a healthy living and working environment. Twelve | West has achieved double LEED Platinum®—one under New Construction, and another under Commercial Interiors.
THE COUNCIL OF INSURANCE AGENTS & BROKERS Corporate Office
ZGF DEVELOPED A STANDARDIZED APPROACH TO BOTH SPACE ALLOCATION AND OFFICE FURNISHING TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND COLLABORATION, WHILE ALSO PROVIDING FLEXIBILITY FOR GROWTH, BUT WITHOUT STRAIN ON INFRASTRUCTURE SYSTEMS OR WORKFLOW.
The Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers (CIAB) is the leading association for national, regional, and international commercial brokerage firms and agencies. Their headquarters, located in Washington, DC, is both an office for a staff of approximately 60, and a welcoming space for visiting organization members. A strategic approach to workplace planning resulted in “future proofed” decisions that allowed CIAB to increase staff within its 15,000 SF office space while realizing space utilization efficiencies. The planning process 56
called for a decreased allocation of individual offices, and provided alternative workspaces to accommodate private phone calls and confidential meetings. Gains in efficiency were made through more effective layouts and circulation. A 10% allocation of space is dedicated to support areas, such as filing and storage, to allow for a more effective workplace. The event and public-facing space is organized to build a sense of community and designed for multiple purposes. A combination of small and large (formal and informal) meeting areas, team workrooms, production spaces, webinar rooms, and studio spaces are also provided for collaboration.
PERKINS COIE LLP Office Renovation PORTLAND, OREGON
AFTER DESIGNING PERKINS COIE’S PEARL DISTRICT OFFICE IN 2003, THE FIRM APPROACHED ZGF AGAIN IN 2012—THREE YEARS AHEAD OF ITS LEASE EXPIRATION— TO EMBARK ON A PLANNING AND DESIGN PROCESS TO CONSOLIDATE AND REFRESH ITS EXISTING SPACE.
communication among attorneys and staff. To maximize the amount of natural light in the building, a skylight was added above the stair. Full-height glazing was added to the perimeter attorney offices to extend views and bring light into internal spaces.
The firm initially considered two options: to remain in its current space or move to a new location in Portland’s central business district. Ultimately, the firm chose to remain in its current location and collaborate again with ZGF on a complete interior remodel.
The conference center was completely remodeled with newly integrated technology and furniture along with updated finishes and high-efficiency LED lighting. An informal, active library space was designed to encourage collaboration and socialization, while alternative quiet work areas located at stair landings provide dramatic Portland views.
Filling three and a half floors, this 21st century, modern office features refined detailing, high-end finishes, and classic furnishings. The space features many materials that are unique for a law office, such as terrazzo floors and metal and glass panels. An open stair off the reception area connects the four levels and facilitates 60
KIRTON M cCONKIE Law Firm
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
ZGF DESIGNED THE NEW LEED GOLD®, SIX-STORY OFFICE BUILDING AND INTERIORS FOR KIRTON MCCONKIE, UTAH’S LARGEST LAW FIRM.
The 45,000 SF headquarters is located in the City Creek Center development in downtown Salt Lake City. ZGF worked with the Kirton McConkie design committee to develop the program, test fit and evaluate space planning alternatives, and define the firm’s identity through a design that resonates with both the legacy and future of Kirton McConkie. The design is focused on quality materials and crafted details throughout the work environment; a palette of materials consisting of marble, limestone, glass, walnut wood paneling, and back-lit onyx defines the space as elegant, timeless, and sophisticated. In addition, the office benefits
from abundant natural light provided by clerestory glass at the enclosed offices and opening the ends of corridors to the views beyond. A unique opportunity for a law firm to occupy the entire building and a transparent, welcoming lobby on the street level give Kirton McConkie a street presence that enhances its visibility. To ensure convenience for clients while providing a secured environment for the firm, the fourth floor serves as the central reception and conference center. The reception area is sized to transition to a large gathering space supported by a catering kitchen. A generous employee lounge features an area for informal interaction, is flexible enough to accommodate employee celebrations, and offers expansive views to the south.
STOEL RIVES LLP Headquarters
ZGF HAS MAINTAINED AN ONGOING RELATIONSHIP WITH STOEL RIVES FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS— INCLUDING THE PLANNING AND DESIGN OF OFFICES IN PORTLAND, SALT LAKE CITY, SEATTLE, MINNEAPOLIS, BOISE, IDAHO, AND VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON.
To assist Stoel Rives in understanding its immediate and future priorities as well as space options in the Portland market, ZGF completed an analysis of short- and longterm needs. Ultimately the firm selected 120,000 SF on the top nine floors in the Park Avenue West tower as its new Portland headquarters. The design allowed for an expanded conference center over two floors to accommodate daily confidential client meetings while creating a welcoming open space for entertaining and large gatherings. Applying trends in law firm “best practices”, the transformative design created 66
efficiencies including attorney offices decreasing by 10% in size; new attorney-practice assistants’ workstations downsized by 30%; and standardization of workspaces and conference rooms. The five floors of attorney’s offices are linked by interconnecting stairs with dedicated collaborative lounges adjacent to the stairs on each floor to facilitate communication among practice groups. A primary design objective was to create an updated image with a Northwestcentric feel, incorporating a high use of wood and steel, paying tribute to the original client base of Stoel Rives in wood products and steel mill industries. The project is designed to achieve a LEED Platinum® and has been certified with four Green Globes for Sustainable Interiors, the highest possible designation.
BUCKLEY LAW LAKE OSWEGO, OREGON
ZGF ASSISTED BUCKLEY LAW WITH THE ASSESSMENT AND TEST-FIT OF FOUR POTENTIAL OFFICE LOCATIONS. THE CHOSEN PROPERTY WAS DESIGNED TO REFLECT THE CULTURE OF THE NEWLY MERGED FIRM, AS WELL AS TO SUPPORT THEIR TRADITIONAL LAW OFFICE NEEDS.
Their new space includes a private office for each attorney, conference rooms, file storage, and semiprivate workstations for paralegals. Respecting the firmâ€™s budget, higher-quality materials were utilized in the more publicly visible areas of the reception area and main conference room. Other details include the addition of a wood base in the corridors and accenting each office entry with 12-inch-wide veneer wood panels.
LITTLER MENDELSON Portland Office Space Planning
ZGF ASSISTED LITTLER MENDELSON WITH THE BUILDING SELECTION AND INTERIOR DESIGN OF THEIR 10,000 SF PORTLAND OFFICE.
The move accommodated Littler’s growing practice and provided the opportunity to create a space that better reflected the firm’s identity as a leading labor and employment law firm. The firm sought an efficient design with a warm modern aesthetic. The palette includes warm woods and rich marble as well as gallerylike corridors that feature the client’s boldly hued art. Glass-enclosed conference rooms are located adjacent to the reception area. These spaces combine to create a large gathering space for events with panoramic views of the Willamette River and downtown Portland. The
cafe is the social heart of the office, providing a space for relaxation and social interaction among employees, both informally and at weekly social events.
DUFFY KEKEL U.S. Bancorp Tower
DUFFY KEKEL RETAINED ZGF TO ASSIST WITH THE SPACE ASSESSMENT AND DESIGN OF ITS NEW 15,000 SF OFFICE.
After a careful review of five properties, the U.S. Bancorp Tower was chosen. ZGF designed the new space on a turnkey budget, providing the firm with a timeless color palette and a modest use of stone and wood in the reception area. With the staffâ€™s input on what would support their individual work styles, custom-built legal assistant stations were designed for either sitting or standing. Located on the 15th floor with commanding views of the Willamette River and downtown Portland, the space also includes three updated conference rooms and full glass relights.
RAY QUINNEY & NEBEKER SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
ZGF WAS COMMISSIONED TO DESIGN A 52,000 SF OFFICE SPACE FOR THIS PRESTIGIOUS LAW FIRM THAT HAD BEEN LOCATED IN THE SAME BUILDING FOR 30 YEARS.
Ray Quinney & Nebeker had incrementally expanded in their aging and traditional space, and wanted a fresh new look to reflect a transition within the firm. The new design needed to find a balance between the traditional and more progressive lawyers. This was accomplished by using traditional materials detailed in a more contemporary style. Materials indigenous to the region were used, including red stone, and natural and stained cherry wood complemented by the warmth of a light bamboo floor. Full-height glass doors and walls were used at all conference room entrances, while acoustical privacy was achieved using wood-clad side walls that integrate storage and media needs. A gradually curving 76
stone wall and ceiling direct attention from the entrance point toward the outside view. All conference rooms have custom designed tables with integrated IT access. The boardroom, which offers a dramatic view of the Blue Mountains, is large enough to hold meetings with all of the partners and is equipped with video conferencing capabilities. The introduction of two stairs connecting three floors was vital to facilitating accessibility and communication among employees.
KLARQUIST SPARKMAN, LLP 2013 Study and Remodel World Trade Center
ZGF HAS COLLABORATED WITH THE LAW FIRM OF KLARQUIST SPARKMAN FOR OVER 30 YEARS.
Following a series of incremental renovations and extensions to their office space over an extended period of time, Klarquist Sparkman embarked upon a complete remodel and expansion to improve both the functionality and aesthetics of the work environment. The remodel encompassed 30,000 SF on two floors (15,000 SF each floor) and the addition of 10,000 SF on a third floor. Office finishes, casework, furniture, lighting and floor coverings were updated, and improvements were made to workstations and related support spaces. The updated design achieves a contemporary yet understated tone, with a neutral palate of wood and stone. All paralegals now support the approximately
50 attorneys in an open floor plan that was reconfigured for efficiency with ergonomically customized individual workstations that feature sit/stand desks. A new conference center was created off the main lobby, which includes four meeting rooms of varying sizes with sliding doors to allow for easy transition for client entertaining. The library shelves were replaced with glass relites, allowing light into the interior space, and a new employee lounge area was added.
INTEGRA TELECOM Headquarters Office Design and Relocation
ZGF APPLIED WORKPLACE STRATEGIES TO INTEGRA'S 80,000 SF CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS RELOCATION, SUPPORTING A SHIFT FROM TRADITIONAL PRIVATE OFFICES AND HIGH-PANELED WORKSTATIONS TO AN INTERACTIVE OPEN-OFFICE ENVIRONMENT.
The need to consolidate space aligned with a new CEO's desire for a more transparent, collaborative working style. Tours were conducted and leadership was educated in current office system trends; focus group workshops were held with all departments. The large, single-floor footprint organizes workstations into multiple neighborhoods. Varying levels of privacy and sizes of meeting rooms allow Integra employees multiple ways to interact with each other. A 1,200 SF cafÃ© was designed with flexible furnishings and spaces for group interaction or quiet time, catered food and 80
drink areas and an indoor-outdoor connection to a large outdoor green space. Experiential graphics play an extensive role in the space, providing reinforcement of Integra's branding and culture to both clients and employees, and providing wayfinding throughout the space.
HAWAIIAN AIRLINES Koapaka Street Corporate Office Renovation
ZGF LED THE RENOVATION OF HAWAIIAN AIRLINES’ CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS IN HONOLULU.
The redesign reduced Hawaiian Airlines’ space from 118,000 SF to approximately 95,000 SF while adding 150 seats and shifting the work space from private offices and enclosed department suites to an interactive open-office environment. The new headquarters also has extensive training facilities for employees who are not based at the Headquarters but are required to visit for recurrent training. The new configuration accommodates approximately 600 work stations organized as long tables. Low screens are used to delineate individual spaces and provide partial seated privacy. This “benching” solution encourages interaction and collaboration while allowing the company to maximize space usage and respond to fluctuating staff 82
levels that result from continuously evolving operations and internal reorganizations. In addition, the openoffice environment includes areas throughout that were designed for easy transition between individual work spaces and meeting spaces. The cafeteria, with flexible furnishings and an indoor-outdoor connection to a large patio, is a multipurpose space that can also be used for large meetings or seminars. ZGF also assisted with change management for redefining the company’s approach to allocating meeting spaces, storage and support functions, as well as meeting with employees to maximize acceptance of the new, non-traditional space. ZGF collaborated with Hawaiian Airlines’ branding consultant, Winkreative, to apply overall branding concepts to the new space.
CID BIO-SCIENCE Headquarters
ZGF DESIGNED THE NEW HEADQUARTERS AND PRODUCTION FACILITY IN AN HISTORIC, WOOD-FRAMED, FORMER AMERICAN LEGION HALL ON THE BRINK OF DISREPAIR.
The renovation restored the original lodge-like quality of the space and created an open and flexible work environment for CID Bio-Science. This adaptive reuse created 12,000 SF of office and production space, while saving an important piece of the City’s history. The design approach celebrates “a Northwest style” and marries the influences from mid-century lodges with manufacturing warehouses. The lodge aesthetic was a key asset that the design team preserved, while showcasing the expansive wooden trusses that bring volume and grandeur to the space. The conference rooms, entry, and stairs along the 86
perimeter, respect the original character of the hall and preserve its rustic design and detailing. In addition, environmental responsibility and reuse of resources were key components of the restoration. All windows were replaced with double-pane windows that more closely fit the historical character of the building and significantly improved energy performance. New window openings were also added to dramatically increase natural daylighting.
KAUFMAN JACOBS Block 300 Interiors Renovation
THE BLOCK 300 (FORMERLY ROBERT DUNCAN PLAZA) BUILDING WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED BY ZGF FOR MELVIN MARK COMPANIES AND WAS LATER PURCHASED BY KAUFMAN JACOBS.
In 2013, two-thirds of the tenant space in Block 300 was vacated due to federal tenants relocating to the newly renovated Wendall Wyatt-Edith Green Federal Building. The building owner selected ZGF to renovate the interior and to help reposition it for Class A office space in order to attract new tenants. The renovated public lobby provides a more welcoming approach from the street, featuring a modern interior that includes a lounge seating area and double-sided fireplace. The pass through lobby has two entrances and uses light and wood to accentuate the space, as well as highly reflective surfaces to help provide volume. Hospitality 88
was a key design goal; the concierge desk was designed to hide the necessary security equipment. Behind the desk is a living green wall, serving as a focal point, visible from the elevator bay and the large conference room off the lobby. The lobby also houses an interactive art installation that adds texture, as well as interest, particularly for the children who attend the daycare located on the ground floor. A camera inside catches the movements of people passing by and reflects the movement with light; it is the only North American commercial installation of a Phillips Organic Light Emitting Diode. The team incorporated numerous green updates into the design, which has achieved LEED GoldÂŽ.
OIA GLOBAL GRESHAM, OREGON
ZGF RECENTLY WORKED WITH OIA GLOBAL, A SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT COMPANY THAT PROVIDES GLOBAL LOGISTICS, PACKAGING AND MATERIALS SOURCING SOLUTIONS FOR CLIENTS, TO SELECT A SITE FOR THEIR NEW PORTLAND HEADQUARTERS.
Following several test fits, OIA selected space in the River Parkway Building due to its convenient location near mass transit and the space’s ability to accommodate OIA’s unique needs. ZGF’s interior designers assisted OIA in configuring 35,000SF on two full floors with a tailored design that addressed the company’s goals for an immersed brand, improved first impression to clients and staff, increased opportunities for staff collaboration and growth and flexibility.
Furniture work stations and corresponding power and data locations were designed to maximize future staff densification of benching work stations with minimal disruption to the space. The result is a new office space with a range of workstations and meeting areas that exemplifies the OIA brand, improves employee productivity and satisfaction, and provides the flexibility and space planning for growth.
ZGF’s design Embodies the values of our University—a history in agriculture, an ethic of environmental effectiveness, and a spirit of collaboration across the arts and sciences. We are thrilled with the outcome for our scientists, for our campus and its place in the region, and for the international community that will benefit from the work of the institute. ROBERT SEGAR, ASSISTANT VICE CHANCELLOR, CAMPUS PLANNING, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON Executive MBA and Sports Product Management Programs
ZGF DESIGNED A STATE-OF-THE-ART 11,000 SF INNOVATION HUB IN DOWNTOWN PORTLAND FOR THE EXECUTIVE MBA AND SPORTS PRODUCT MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS, BOTH PART OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON’S LUNDQUIST COLLEGE OF BUSINESS.
The UO’s brand concepts of community, pursuit, and innovation were incorporated into the design and are highly visible throughout the space. The entrance features regionally sourced wood and a custom ceiling integrating a twinkling, backlit world map, while functioning as a large collaboration and study space. Active learning classrooms and small break out spaces extend throughout the facility. The Executive MBA classroom, with blonde wood and natural light, accommodates 60 people in a tiered design that facilitates interaction through direct lines 94
of sight. The room is ideally suited for the Harvard case study method of learning. Each desk has wired and wireless broadband connectivity and low-glare lighting to reduce eye fatigue. High-performance audiovisual capabilities include carefully calculated screen image ratios and viewing angles. The teaching wall provides adjustability and flexibility for the lecturer to teach in their preferred manner. Students can utilize a “flat” one-level classroom for breakout sessions that doubles as a dining facility and team meeting space. The lecture hall, designed to accommodate over 100 people, has the ability to be reconfigured for use by smaller groups. It also includes floor-to-ceiling white boards and was designed with the intent to encourage student collaboration.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON Athletic Medicine Center
OCCUPYING 15,000 SF WITHIN THE EXISTING CASANOVA CENTER, THE ZGF-DESIGNED ATHLETIC MEDICINE CENTER PROVIDES THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON’S ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT WITH A STATE-OF-THE-ART SPORTS THERAPY AND TRAINING FACILITY FOR MORE THAN 400 STUDENT-ATHLETES.
The facility captures the changing nature of healthcare design, reflecting the University’s desire for a holistic approach to healing, stimulation, and focus for its athletes. Comprised of three larger spaces bordered by conference and treatment rooms, the Athletic Medicine Center provides ample space for treadmills and exercise bikes, three hydrotherapy tubs, hot and cold tubs, a nutrition bar, a treatment area with adjacent examination rooms, massage and taping tables, a student seating area, an x-ray facility, and meeting 98
rooms. The design approaches sports therapy as a healing environment more comparable to a spa than a clinic. While it is common for athletes who have suffered injuries to become isolated from the rest of their team, this circumstance is mitigated in the new facility by spaces that maintain visual continuity and connection, but also offer built-in privacy. Glass in the medical exam rooms is transparent, but it can be transformed to an opaque barrier when needed. The therapy pools for injured players are in the same space as the plunge pools for other players, but the pools are separated by a water feature. A similar need exists to keep staff integrated and separated from the athletes. The sophisticated layering of spaces allows people to be grouped or split in an innovative way.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON John E. Jaqua Academic Center for Student Athletes
THIS 40,000 SF STATE-OF-THE-ART LEARNING CENTER FOR STUDENT ATHLETES, DESIGNED BY ZGF, INCORPORATES A RANGE OF LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS, FROM SMALL SPACES FOR INDIVIDUAL TUTORIALS TO A LARGE AUDITORIUM.
The mix of uses is intended to focus on the notion of learning through collaboration and peer interaction. The first floor of the building is open to the public with a café, an auditorium, an atrium for public events, and heritage space that recognizes past, present, and future student-athletes at the University. The two floors above are for the exclusive use of the University’s studentathletes and staff, and require secure access. The facility includes a 114-seat auditorium, 35 tutor rooms, 25 faculty / advising offices, a conference room, a flexible classroom, a computer laboratory, a graphics laboratory, 102
3D teaching laboratories, and a library. The building is adjacent to existing and future amenities, and fronts a campus gateway. The site’s visual prominence led to the building being designed with four public façades and no ‘back door,’ which has reinforced its importance within the landscape as an iconic element. Sustainability was an integral part of the project. A “double wall” façade addresses acoustic isolation, thermal insulation, and control of available daylight within the building, creating a dynamic response to orientation, while reinforcing the concepts of transparency and connectivity.
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON Washington Commons
ZGF DESIGNED THE COMMONS—THE NEW HOME FOR THE OFFICE OF ADVANCEMENT AND THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION—TO PROVIDE A WELCOMING, HOSPITABLE AND MEMORABLE ENVIRONMENT THAT CONVEYS THE SPIRIT AND RICH HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY.
The 4,000 SF space includes reception, a living room style main gathering space, and a large conference room supported by a catering kitchen to host fundraising events and alumni gatherings. In working with the university to develop the vision for the space, identify commonalities between mission and program of both groups and to interpret the campus’ history, legacy and image a number of themes emerged that were embraced in the design including concepts of permanence, legacy, timelessness, transformation, and purpose. To evoke these themes gold and purple 106
materials, finishes and lighting—traditional UW colors— were used generously throughout, elements such as the gothic relief and lit panel at the entry recall the historic Suzzallo Library form and stained glass windows at the heart of the campus, and the main board room includes a graphic composition of alumni celebrating the legacy of the institution.
ZGFâ€™s design for us synthesizes core programmatic elements, performance criteria, and design aspirations into an elegant architectural expression. Their application of evidence-based design principles, incorporation of cutting-edge medical technologies, a clear and functional organization, as well as a design for long-term flexibility, will enable us to provide the highest level of healthcare. CAROL PEET, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, FRANCISCAN HEALTH SYSTEM

The clinic includes exam and procedure rooms, offices and conference rooms, a children’s waiting area, additional waiting and reception areas, and specimen laboratories.
BC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL & BC WOMEN’S HOSPITAL + HEALTH CENTRE Teck Acute Care Centre
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA
ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH HDR | CEI ARCHITECTURE, DESIGNED THE EIGHT-STORY, 640,000 SF CHILDREN’S AND WOMEN’S INPATIENT TOWER AS MEMBERS OF THE AFFINITY P3 (PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP) TEAM.
The primary design objective was to improve care delivery by optimizing access and flow and incorporating Evidence-based design principles such as natural light, views, roof gardens, purposeful art, LED lighting. In response, the team designed the public entry and elevator core to reside along the main circulation concourse of the larger hospital campus and separate public, patient, and staff flows. Inpatient units are standardized in size and layout and are adaptable to meet evolving needs and maximize caregiver time with patients. The new facility includes an emergency
department, imaging and procedural suites, hematology and oncology departments, a high-risk birthing suite, neonatal intensive care units and a pediatric intensive care unit. The design team worked with caregivers, staff, and a patient advisory group to develop a design that provides positive distractions and ease of wayfinding. The building will be LEED Gold®.
UNC HOSPITALS Hillsborough Campus
HILLSBOROUGH, NORTH CAROLINA
WITH THE GOAL OF REACHING DEEPER INTO THE HILLSBOROUGH COMMUNITY, ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH EYP / BJAC, DESIGNED THIS NEW 270,000 SF HOSPITAL ON A GREENFIELD SITE THAT WAS SELECTED IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE GROWTH OVER TIME.
As the new home for the UNC Hospitals, Hillsborough campus, this multi-phase project included the campus build-out of a 60,000 SF medical office building (completed in 2013), a 14,000 SF central utility plant, and surface parking. The completion of the LEED-Silver registered hospital—with a Level 2 emergency department, 68 licensed beds, 15 observation beds, a surgical suite with six shared operating rooms and two general procedure rooms, a Post Anesthesia Care Unit, and pre- and post-surgical recovery—concludes the Phase 1 development. The 122
full campus build-out is expected to include more than 800,000 additional square feet of building space. The hospital is designed to expand in place without disturbing the front door and public face of the facility. To that end, the curved façade of the hospital seamlessly links to the existing medical office building. Additional bed towers, expansion of the diagnostic and treatment block, as well as additional medical office buildings, can be added in any order or combination to provide a flexible framework for the future and to maximize the use of the site. The interior color palette and artwork throughout the building are based on North Carolina’s three predominant landscapes: coastal, piedmont, and mountain. Each level of the bed tower features aquas, greens, or purples, along with corresponding nature scenes in signage, artwork, and patient room design.
DANA-FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE Yawkey Center for Cancer Care BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS
ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH MILLER DYER SPEARS, DESIGNED DANA-FARBER’S NEWEST CLINICAL FACILITY AND NEW SIGNATURE IMAGE.
The 285,000 SF building provides space on over 14 floors for 100 examination rooms, 150 infusion chairs, an expanded clinical research center, and public services for dining, retail, and quiet reflection. The facility also includes seven levels of underground parking with connections to other Dana-Farber Cancer Institute buildings that link to affiliated hospitals, bringing research and clinical staff into close proximity. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s primary goal for the Yawkey Center was to create a state-of-the-art clinical building that promotes personalized, multidisciplinary, safe, respectful, and compassionate cancer care for patients and families in a healing environment. Other 126
goals were to stimulate translation of research into the care of patients, optimize flexibility and utility of space, streamline the flow of patients and materials, minimize wait and treatment times, foster productivity and collaboration among staff, and create a new front entrance and presence. The project is LEED Gold®, and served as a pilot in the Green Guide for Healthcare v2.2 initiative.
CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO DENVER, COLORADO
ZGF SERVED AS DESIGN ARCHITECT, WORKING IN ASSOCIATION WITH H+L ARCHITECTURE AS ARCHITECT OF RECORD, FOR A 1,440,000 SF REPLACEMENT FACILITY FOR CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO, LOCATED NEXT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO DENVER, SCHOOL OF MEDICINE.
Evidence-Based Design principles informed the design process of this award-winning Pebble Project®, which houses 270 inpatient beds, outpatient clinics, offices, research and education space, and parking. All facilities are state-of-the-art, with flexible technology infrastructure to anticipate the evolution of medicine and the care of children beyond the next century. The idea of clarity and comfort, and family-centered care infuses all design aspects of the project. The result reflects the thoughts given to all factors that can 130
influence healing: color, texture, natural light, art, access to the outdoors, and amenities. The focal point of the building is a central atrium, which serves as the family living room and introduces light into the heart of the building. The four-story atrium captures the whimsy and spirit of the hospital through the incorporation of a terrazzo floor that features familiar shapes found in nature. The hospital’s art program, a critical component of its healing environment, extends to the walls above as well, where glass panels feature a variety of images like snowflakes that, upon closer inspection, are composed of animals, skaters, and baseball players. Spaces such as roof decks, terraces, and gardens, adjacent to the cafeteria and conference center, expand activities to the outdoors.
CHILDREN’S HEALTH Children’s Medical Center Plano
SEEKING TO BE CHILD-RIGHT BUT NOT CHILDISH, THE CHILDREN’S MEDICAL CENTER AT LEGACY DESIGN BY ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH PAGE, WAS HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY THE HOSPITAL’S MISSION OF PROVIDING PATIENTAND FAMILY-CENTERED CARE AND USING NATURE FOR ITS IMPACT ON HEALING.
Children’s Medical Center at Legacy was conceived as both a complement to the main campus in Dallas, and as a community-based hospital to better serve suburban-based families. The 328,000 SF building was scaled appropriately to fit its site and blend with the neighboring community, as well as to let the natural setting reach everyone inside. The facility features three above-ground floors plus a lower garden level, 72 single-patient rooms, four operating rooms (plus shelled space for four more), full-service diagnostics, 134
an urgent / emergency care center, a lobby café, a full-service cafeteria, a chapel, a gift shop, a family resource center, and various patient and family lounges. Patient rooms are full of light and have a residential character to their furnishings, cabinetry, and material palette. The arrangement of the nursing units—at the patient room entry vestibule, with clear sight lines to both patients and the outdoors—also embraces natural surroundings, which creates a positive work environment for the caregivers.
SEATTLE CHILDRENâ€™S Faculty Physician Workplace
ZGF TRANSFORMED 16,000 SF OF FORMERLY CLOSED PRIVATE OFFICES INTO A HIGHLY COLLABORATIVE OPEN PLAN ENVIRONMENT DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE SPACE UTILIZATION AND ENHANCE TEAM-BASED CARE.
The first-of-its-kind workspace for the hospital required buy-in from an intergenerational physician staff and leadership previously dispersed across the hospital campus. The result is a paradigm shift in the way the academic medical center organizes their workspaces. Based around six-person neighborhoods that balance collaboration with the need for privacy and contemplative workspace, the project includes a mix of meeting and support spaces in a flexible, technologyrich setting. Using a Lean, cross-functional approach to programming, the team worked through a series of Integrated Design Events to make collective design 136
decisions that greatly decrease travel time so that staff and faculty can spend more time at the patient bedside, while adhering to an accelerated design and construction schedule.
MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER Brooklyn Infusion Center
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
ZGF WORKED WITH MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER (MSKCC) TO DEVELOP NEW PROTOCOLS IN CANCER CARE DELIVERY THROUGH THE INNOVATION OF A NEW STYLE OF CLINIC.
The new 7,745 SF Brooklyn Infusion Center (BIC) is the first prototype to bring infusion into MSKCC patient communities. The project allows the client to explore the effectiveness, efficiency, and acceptance of a streamlined care model in which patients receive their chemotherapy at a neighborhood site in Brooklyn and the balance of their care in Manhattan. The Center is designed to deliver efficient, leading-edge care in a non-institutional, welcoming, and healing environment, and balances a sense of community with private space. Patient-centered amenities include the ability to leave personal belongings between visits, and 138
a variety of social spaces, such as an indoor garden with conversation areas, a library, and a communal â€œfarm tableâ€? area that allows people to gather for shared activities. A Flex Treatment Room allows for alternative health treatments, such as yoga and meditation; telemedicine is available to enable patients to communicate with their off-site caregivers; and complementary therapies, such as acupressure, Reiki massage, and relaxation techniques are available, allowing each patient to be treated in a comprehensive and personalized way. The BIC follows the MSKCC Facility Standards for environmentally responsible materials and specifications, including the use of zero-VOC paints, high-efficiency plumbing, and high-performance lighting.

lounge spaces at each level, creates a focal point for interaction for the entire building. The first phase has achieved LEED Silver®. Phase two is a 187,436 SF, connecting seven-story addition that will incorporate computational biology and graduate school programs, as well as a 350-seat conference center.
THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA Thomas W. Keating Bioresearch Building / Medical Research Building
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED TWO RESEARCH BUILDINGS TO SUPPORT MULTIDISCIPLINARY FACULTY, STUDENTS, AND INDUSTRY PARTNERS TO FACILITATE THE TRANSLATION OF BASIC RESEARCH INTO REAL WORLD APPLICATIONS.
The 143,257 SF Medical Research Building was programmed for basic scientists and physician researchers to advance the understanding of the molecular basis of human health, aging, and disease. The 177,063 SF Thomas W. Keating Bioresearch Building is home of the BIO5 Institute, which brings together world-class scientists from five disciplines—agriculture, medicine, pharmacy, basic science, and engineering. Both buildings are designed as four levels of flexible laboratories, administrative and faculty offices, graduate student workstations, and conference facilities—all 152
organized into research neighborhoods. One of the most important design decisions was to locate office and meeting areas in proximity to, but not inside, the laboratories. Conference rooms and informal gathering spaces are scattered throughout each floor and outdoors to stimulate interaction. The buildings are physically linked by enclosed walkways, a shared courtyard, and a 90-foot-tall metal Ramada structure to foster interaction and allow researchers to share core research facilities, equipment, and meeting rooms.
NYU LANGONE HEALTH Alexandria Center for Life Science – NYC East Tower / Laboratory Fit-Out
ZGF PERFORMED A FEASIBILITY STUDY, PROGRAM, AND DESIGN FOR 65,000 SF OF FLEXIBLE LABORATORIES IN THE ALEXANDRIA CENTER FOR LIFE SCIENCE – NYC EAST TOWER TO ACCOMMODATE NYU LANGONE HEALTH’S CURRENT AND FUTURE TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH NEEDS IN PSYCHIATRY, NEUROLOGY, OTOLARYNGOLOGY, MEDICINE (RHEUMATOLOGY), ANESTHESIOLOGY, NEUROSURGERY, MICROBIOLOGY, AND BIOCHEMISTRY.
The project was comprised of the laboratory fit-out of floors 3, 8, and 9, and a vivarium for neuroscience. Each floor included space for office / administration, open laboratory, and laboratory support, in addition to providing core facilities, conference rooms and spaces for interaction. Among the project’s goals was the need for optimal efficiency and flexibility to accommodate long-term research needs. The laboratory 156
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
module developed for this project has become the planning standard for NYU Langone Health. The design maximizes the building’s spectacular East River and City views by locating the laboratories on the east and west sides, while placing office and shared spaces to the north and south ends of the building. Circulation spaces are enhanced by wall-mounted, illuminated light-boxes with gels of natural patterns, back-painted glass write-up panels, and tack-boards for the display of current research.
NYU LANGONE HEALTH Research Facilities for the Departments of Psychiatry and Child + Adolescent Psychiatry NEW YORK, NEW YORK
ZGF DESIGNED 67,800 SF OF NEW CLINICAL, RESEARCH, AND ADMINISTRATIVE SPACE ON TWO FLOORS IN THE ONE PARK AVENUE BUILDING TO ACCOMMODATE MAJOR PORTIONS OF NYU LANGONE HEALTH’S PROGRAMS.
The Department of Psychiatry’s lobby is located on the eighth floor and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department’s lobby is on the seventh floor. Each has a unique identity, while maintaining the desired separation between clients of differing ages. The overall facility includes open workstations, shared and private offices, workrooms, conference rooms, and collaboration spaces for over 400 employees—providing both visual and acoustic privacy, as well as security within and between the departments. The density of the program and the building’s large footprint influenced the concept of “The City” as an organizing theme. This was reflected 158
in the layout by the creation of smaller neighborhoods, a clear circulation plan, and community work spaces—in the same way that the City employs plazas, streets, and parks to define unique character. Conference facilities and the Child Studies “Hub” were strategically located to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between the child, adolescent, and adult programs. Color and materials were carefully selected to serve the working needs of professionals and staff, while providing interest and variety for the broad range of ages of visitors and patients.
THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO Gwen and Jules Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery
CREATING SPACES THAT WILL ENCOURAGE INTERACTION IN EACH DEPARTMENT, BUT ALSO BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS, WAS AT THE HEART OF ZGF’S DESIGN FOR THIS 10-STORY RESEARCH BUILDING.
The 330,760 SF building was designed with open plan laboratories that can be divided into smaller laboratories when necessary to control the environments. The office space was configured in a parallel bar to the laboratories to provide connectivity between the principal investigators and their laboratories. The linear “open plan” office area can be configured as computational research space or administrative workstations. At the center of each floor is a series of two-level spaces with an interconnecting stair linking pairs of floors. Each double-height space includes a break area with seating and coffee bar 160
to encourage interaction between researchers on adjacent floors. At the north end of the building, where there are spectacular views of the City, a second set of double-height spaces link alternate floors up the building. These spaces include clustered conference rooms effectively linking the entire research environment. Clinical offices, administration, conference facilities, and a café are located on the ground floor.
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON Engineering Research Center
ZGF DESIGNED THE 5,500 SF ENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTER TO BRING TOGETHER LEADERS IN ROBOTIC, NEUROSCIENCE, COMPUTER SCIENCE, AND OTHER DISCIPLINES TO ADVANCE THE INTEGRATION OF TECHNOLOGIES WITH HUMAN NEURAL SYSTEMS.
Located within the George Russell Jr. Building at the University of Washington, the new facility is used to pursue interdisciplinary research and education to address questions important to both human health and robotics, and to provide the foundation for new industries through innovation. The Center was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. More specifically, researchers at the Center use robotic devices that assist in the understanding of the nervous system, combining advances in robotics, neuroscience, electromechanical devices, and computer 162
science to restore or augment the body’s ability for sensation and movement. Research will lead to new technologies developed for amputees, people with spinal cord injuries, and people with cerebral palsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and age-related neurological disorders. Based on the client’s desire for an inviting space that would foster a spirit of collaboration, the design provides a highly flexible arrangement featuring open spaces that take advantage of natural light and a lively color palette.
J. CRAIG VENTER INSTITUTE J. Craig Venter Institute La Jolla
LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA
ZGF PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED THIS 44,607 SF BUILDING, WHICH IS COMPRISED OF LABORATORY AND OFFICE / DRY RESEARCH SPACE ABOVE A PARTIALLY BELOW-GRADE PARKING STRUCTURE, IN RESPONSE TO THE CLIENT’S CHALLENGE TO HAVE A BUILDING THAT GENERATES MORE ENERGY THAN IT CONSUMES.
The J. Craig Venter Institute is a leader in genomic research, with a commitment to environmental stewardship. The LEED Platinum® facility has been designed with a net-zero energy footprint, and is one of the greenest buildings in the country. The team’s holistic approach to design revolved around energy performance and water conservation. To reduce energy loads and optimize the mechanical system, the computational laboratories and administrative spaces are located in one wing, and wet laboratories occupy the other. Ground 164
level wet laboratories utilize an easily reconfigurable “plug and play” casework system that encourages transparency and creates an environment that can be rearranged overnight. The dry wing provides open and private offices, formal meeting areas, temporary visitor stations, and informal open modular seating to support administrative and research activities and to foster collaboration. Two arrays comprising 26,124 SF of photovoltaic surface are predicted to exceed the building demand, pushing excess power generated back into the grid. The systems have been refined to be completely integrated and work together to achieve the energy performance goals.
GOVERNMENT / CIVIC
Seattle is one of the nationâ€™s leaders in promoting energy efficiency, so I can think of no better place for this project. I want to thank the GSA for recognizing that energy conservation through building retrofits is one of the most effective and affordable ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Retrofitting the Federal Center South complex will not only be better for the cityâ€™s environment, but will create jobs and save taxpayer dollars. I hope that we will replicate this model in buildings all over the country. JIM MCDERMOTT, U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
KING COUNTY LIBRARY SYSTEM Lake Hills Library
ZGF’S INTERIOR DESIGN OF KING COUNTY LIBRARY SYSTEM’S (KCLS) 10,000 SF FLAGSHIP LIBRARY AND EASTSIDE “INFORMATION HUB” WAS INTENDED TO EXPRESS AN IMAGE OF CIVIC IMPORTANCE AND MONUMENTALITY.
The interior concept emphasizes flexibility and openness, highlighted through a series of clerestory vaults, while a complex exterior composition of forms creatively dissolves mass, separates functions, and punctuates key areas such as entries. In addition to reinforcing KCLS’s goal of enhancing the lives of its users through exceptional facilities, the building evolves the traditional image of a library into a community-centered, multi-functional venue. Amenities and comfortable seating areas provide a place to sit and relax with a cup of coffee and a good book. Strategically located custom 170
displays highlight feature materials and encourage casual browsing. Self-serve check-out stations and stand-up reference desks provide expanded wireless internet access, improve information accessibility, and enhance the overall patron experience.
PORT OF PORTLAND Headquarters & Long-Term Parking Garage
THE PORT OF PORTLAND’S HEADQUARTERS BUILDING AT THE PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SHOWCASES THE CLIENT’S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES, WHILE REFLECTING A 21ST CENTURY CULTURE—ONE PORT—IN AN EFFORT TO INCREASE COLLABORATION AND FOSTER A TEAM ENVIRONMENT.
The 205,603 SF building consists of three floors of office space atop seven floors of public airport parking. The facility is located to the east of Portland International Airport’s main terminal building and is connected to the existing parking structure, serving as a new gateway to the airport. The design reflects a reorganization of the Port along functional lines, rather than departmental, and brings together staff in the Marine and Aviation Divisions previously dispersed in several Portland locations. ZGF worked closely with 172
the Port to develop new standards for office space to accommodate a shift from a closed office environment to primarily open plan—98% is open office, while 2% is private offices for those whose job functions demand privacy. Comfort and cost-effective solutions were a primary concern, as was telling the Port’s story through artwork. Open atria provide visual connections between the floors and assist with wayfinding, while enhancing communication. The project is LEED Platinum® and has been named one of the world’s most high-tech green buildings by Forbes magazine, as well as honored with a Smart Environments Award by the International Interior Design Association and Metropolis magazine.
U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION FDA at Irvine, Regional Laboratory and District Office IRVINE, CALIFORNIA
ZGF, IN JOINT VENTURE WITH HDR, PROGRAMMED AND DESIGNED A NEW 133,470 SF BUILDING FOR THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION TO REPLACE AND CONSOLIDATE THE AGENCY’S AGING LABORATORIES AND FORMER DISTRICT OFFICE.
Completion of this building facilitated a changing institutional culture and new work methods to address advances in technology and science. The facility is comprised of testing laboratories, laboratory services, and offices, along with a conference center, a dining a area, a library, and training area. Eliminating visual barriers between the office and laboratory modules was key to the design, as was harmonizing the building with its irregularly shaped, 10-acre site overlooking a marshy wetland of upper Newport Bay. The geometry of the building’s plan closely marries site considerations 176
with strict functional requirements. Three two-story rectangular laboratory blocks are arranged in a stepped echelon facing southwest. The office components of the program are attached directly to the laboratories, with glass walls separating the two elements. Stretching from the entrance lobby to the library at its far end, a twostory circulation spine is conceived as a curved internal street, in the California tradition of uniting the interiors with the outdoors. Through its openness, the building reveals the intent of the FDA to build a newly integrated work culture.
U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Region 8 Headquarters
THE 292,000 SF EPA REGION 8 HEADQUARTERS, DESIGNED BY ZGF WITH OPUS ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS, IS THE RESULT OF A DESIGN PROCESS THAT SOUGHT TO INTEGRATE A HIGH-PERFORMANCE, CONTEMPORARY, SECURE, AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE BUILDING INTO ONE OF DENVER’S MOST IMPORTANT HISTORIC AND CIVIC DISTRICTS.
A key program goal was to establish the building as an architectural and sustainable design landmark that embodies the EPA’s mission to protect and enhance human health and the environment. The result is a nine-story, LEED-Gold certified building that sets an example of environmental stewardship, with features that include Denver’s first green roof designed to treat and manage stormwater. The atrium space is
the “hearth” of the building, creating a welcoming, invigorating public space with views into the heart of the EPA workplace. It creates a central focal point for the public lobby, connects the library, conference, and fitness centers, and creates a central informal interaction place for the EPA community. The mission and goals of the EPA are clearly demonstrated in the design of the space through materials, passive ecological systems, educational exhibits, and inviting and interactive spatial and functional relationships.
U.S. GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION Federal Center South Building 1202
ZGF DESIGNED THE 209,000 SF REGIONAL HEADQUARTERS FOR THE U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS. DELIVERED DESIGN-BUILD, THE HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING PROVIDES THE CORPS WITH A 21ST CENTURY WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT BATHED IN NATURAL DAYLIGHT.
The concept—the Oxbow—features a narrow office bar bent around a central shared atrium called the commons. The open plan office layout provides the greatest amount of flexibility for teams to grow and shrink and the commons—where all the conference rooms and shared services are located at the core of the building—compels users to come together. The design integrates active and passive systems, materials and strategies to achieve aggressive water and energy saving requirements without sacrificing comfort or 180
amenity. Optimized mechanical systems feature chilled beams, heat recovery and phase-change thermal energy storage. The reclamation of 200,000 board feet of timber from a warehouse previously located on the site provides a dramatic interior environment. The LEED Platinum® building is performing in the top 1 percent of similar-sized office buildings in the U.S. with an EUI of 25 kBTU/SF/yr and an Energy Star score of 99—meeting the 2030 Challenge.

THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS Conference Center
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
DESIGNED BY ZGF, IN ASSOCIATION WITH GSBS ARCHITECTS, THIS 1,122,871 SF CONFERENCE CENTER, COMPRISING THE ENTIRE BLOCK IMMEDIATELY NORTH OF TEMPLE SQUARE, IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST THEATER, ACCOMMODATING VISITORS FOR THEATRICAL, ORCHESTRAL, AND CHORAL PERFORMANCES. EVENTS FROM THIS MULTIFUNCTIONAL FACILITY ARE TRANSLATED INTO OVER 120 LANGUAGES AND BROADCAST WORLDWIDE.
ZGF led the team through the planning and design of this one-of-a-kind facility that contains a 21,000-seat assembly and performance hall, a 900-seat theater, a 1,400-car underground parking garage, a variety of outdoor public gathering areas, and a six-acre roof garden and terrace. The building meets the street with public plazas, and is crowned with an 186
extraordinary four-acre meadow. This rooftop garden is a role model for “green roof” design. It is visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year, including church members, the general public, and building industry representatives. Its construction immediately above a major theater hall, with free-spans of over 175 feet, was an exceptional challenge, but under ZGF’s leadership, the building became a model for urban design and environmental stewardship. The design has also been studied and emulated around the world for its advances in on-structure planting, lightweight soil systems development, and waterproofing systems.
MULTNOMAH COUNTY Justice Center
THE ZGF-DESIGNED (IN ASSOCIATION WITH PIETRO BELLUSCHI) 560,000 SF, 16-STORY JUSTICE CENTER, A REPLACEMENT FACILITY FOR ROCKY BUTTE JAIL, INTEGRATES DETENTION, COURTS, POLICE, AND RETAIL OPERATIONS INTO ONE BUILDING, WHICH REFLECTS THE MOST PROGRESSIVE CORRECTIONAL THINKING.
Located in Portland’s downtown Government Center, the facility successfully weaves together three justice related components in a “public condominium” of sorts along with underground parking. The retail arcade at the ground level provides a generous public amenity in an otherwise programmatically introverted building. The building parti distinguishes the disparate functions horizontally and vertically, giving each area its own separate identity, while also meeting each program’s unique circulation and security requirements. The 188
building’s entries and lobbies convey the dignity of the law. Given the complex organization of the building, its prominent site, and need to reconcile public and private faces, two front doors resulted—one for the courts and jail, and the other for the police precinct and police headquarters. An interior public corridor connects the two entrances. Artwork is an integral part of the building design. Perhaps, most notable is the great arched stained glass window, designed by Ed Carpenter, that augments the glazed roof of the building’s main lobby.
