Exton, PA

Before relocating 400 employees from Chesterbrook to a new facility in Exton, PA, Shire Pharmaceuticals wanted to improve shared spaces in the new location. 

On the exterior, the goal is to create a better entry sequence and establish the building as a destination. A new glass canopy at the primary entrance, along with landscaping, hardscaping, signage and a sculptural monument, will reinforce the company’s identity by creating a human-scaled pedestrian experience. 

Updates to existing interior spaces include a new lobby to reflect key branding elements and a new cafeteria and dining experience. The cafeteria will feature a new kitchen, servery, coffee bar and seating area, which will be connected to the adjacent lobby. These shared spaces will welcome employees and visitors to the new campus, projecting Shire’s values and brand identity.
