The headquarters are located in 35 acre campus in McLean, Virginia. This 4-level, 190,000 sf office building with 3 levels of parking was programmed and designed as a flexible and efficient structure that would respect the natural character of the wooded site and its relationship to the other campus buildings.
The façade presents a logical, rhythmic succession of “punched” windows, addressing the orderly procession of the adjacent. The rear of the building, facing a heavily wooded area, changes to an aluminum-finned ribbon pattern of openings, and finally, to a glass curtain wall facing the trees. The rear terrace is landscaped, itself, with trees and natural ground covers, tying the building to the site.
