MARION OFFICE BUILDING
The client, a financial management firm, promotes an office culture focused on creativity, efficiency, and a healthy lifestyle and environment. The building was designed with both passive solar and low-tech sustainable strategies. The shape and orientation of the building maximizes solar exposure that increases natural light into the space, provides warmth during the winter months, and increases ventilation for the summer months to reduce energy consumption. An innovative onsite storm water management system will provide irrigation for the site, reducing water use. The interior was designed to allow the owner maximum flexibility in the open office areas to facilitate an ongoing desire to rearrange workstations and accommodate future growth.
