Headquarters Office Building
This company selected a half acre site adjacent to the Katy Trail near Highland Park to build a 15,000 SF headquarters office. GFF was charged with creating a design that would serve multiple generations, with humility and good stewardship. The resulting building is three stories with a limestone base which conceals secured ground level parking. A mostly glass box, protected from the sun by a steel brise-soliel, enjoys treetop views across the trail toward Highland Park. The vertical circulation core anchors the glass box to a taller stone clad element. The resulting composition is regionally and climatically appropriate, modern yet timeless. Construction began in September 2016.
