....The challenges of this design were to provide a new and appealing public face to an existing industrial facility while solving problems of vehicle access and setback issues on a very restrictive site. The new construction was a two story steel frame with stressed-skin wall panels. The exterior finishes were fiber-cement stone panels with brick matching the existing building. Ceramic tiles were used to highlight the central entry form exterior.

....The same stone panels were carried inside and contrasted with wood wall systems, special ceilings, and butt glazed walls that gave vision to the high tech kitchen and labs from the conference / sales room and offices. Corporate executive offices were located in the upper level of this addition built in 2002.
