Before relocating 400 employees from Chesterbrook to a new facility in Exton, PA, Shire Pharmaceuticals wanted to improve both interior and exterior shared spaces in the new location.
The exterior achieves the goal of creating a better entry sequence and establishing the building as a destination. The new glass canopy at the primary entrance, along with landscaping, hardscaping, signage and a sculptural monument, reinforces 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 features a new kitchen, servery, coffee bar and seating area, which connect to the adjacent lobby. These shared spaces welcome employees and visitors to the new campus, projecting Shire’s values and brand identity.
