Reese Engineering Offices
State College, PA
Designed as a series of connected pavilions, the exterior makes use of natural materials such as stained cedar siding, colored stucco and copper roofs. Broad expanses of glass with large sheltering overhangs take advantage of views of the site and indirect day lighting.
The one-story facility has three open studios with soaring ceilings and glass walls that face the site’s secluded six-acre wooded campus. At the building center is the lobby and bistro, an open space with a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, dining area, club chairs and a fireplace. An adjacent courtyard with flagstone patio provides outdoor seating. Other amenities include an extensive resource library, two conference rooms, a large workroom and a fitness center for employees and their families. Staff input and feedback was encouraged throughout the planning and design process.
