Modern and Well-Connected

The headquarters building is modern and distinct, serving as the new identity of the surrounding campus while still embracing a complementary aesthetic. The team incorporated horizontal expressions that highlight entrances as well as canopies and lighting features that emphasize points of connection.

The building’s orientation and fenestration on the east and west optimize performance, mitigating glare and reducing heat through a vertical patterning that is also reminiscent of Medpace-researched DNA sequencing.
