The Bobst Group http://www.bobstgroup.com/Global/Corporate/en, a Swiss manufacturing company, was in need of a North American headquarters building and production plant. HQW designed a building sensitive to the landscape and the occupants. To take advantage of a heavily landscaped site the building was designed with a low profile to allow grade to reach the base of the windows and blend in with the surrounding tree lines. Using a saw toothed pattern for the plan gave the building a greater number of windows which allowed more natural light to penetrate the interior. Although much of the steel frame and masonry building is devoted to light manufacturing, the corporate offices are the focal point of the building.
