CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT COMMAND CENTER
Gensler partnered with a local Arizona utility to create a cutting edge command and control center from the shell of an abandoned slump block warehouse just outside downtown Phoenix. Dramatic incisions were made to both the skin and roof of the building to allow natural lighting deep within the space while a solar array shade canopy provided alternative means of power for the facility. Additions to the warehouse are cladded in zinc panels to add a contemporary aesthetic to the exterior, while ribbons of orange glass lighten the interior in contrast to the heavy precast concrete structure that remains in place.
