Modular Future Proof Building for High-Tech Company

This was a Design/Build proposal for the Austin Company to provide a prestigious office and Warehouse building for a major manufacturer of consumer electronic products. The site is on the QEW in Mississauga and the client wanted a high-tech, high profile building equal in design quality and construction quality  to their very sophisticated electronic products. Like all of these types of facilities, expansion must be built into the design. In this case a doubling of phase one was required.
The clients also wanted a pleasant environment for their large office staff as well as a large parking lot. The offices are accommodated in a round terraced structure in front of the warehouse and wraps around a landscaped  interior court with a glass roof. The façade fronting on the QEW is modulated and the expansion is a mirror image of phase one. A large reflecting pool facing the QEW along with an abundance of planting and trees are the main components of simple but compelling landscape treatment. The building is clad in brushed ribbed aluminium panels.
