A&K DEVELOPMENT The A&K Development project was a study to revamp the office space and entry for a local manufacturing facility. It was intended to help the company continue to develop a strong corporate identity. We researched the existing structures and traffic patterns through the site as well as evaluating the needs of the corporate office staff. Our vision of the facility began with the design of the central core that would hold the offices and meeting spaces for staff and clients. The rest of the facility was envisioned as a steel truss building with glass doors that allow light to penetrate deep into the warehouse spaces. Integrated sun shades on the exterior of the facade manage glare and heat gain. Traffic studies, turn-around areas for trucks and storage for offloading containers were all incorporated into the overall site plan and building design.
