This 14,500-SF product design center renovation for Mannington Commercial Carpets incorporates green architecture inside and out.
The exterior's landmark is a perforated metal sign based on the corporate brand. Its steeply pitched roof, concrete piers, metal panel siding and full-height glass create striking and inviting space. The interior is divided into two spaces: vestibule/reception and gallery/display areas. The gallery/display area provides seating and functions as an interactive breakout area with phone/laptop rooms. A kitchen and dining area, also used for presentations, was refurbished as well.
The upper level houses a new customer and staff multimedia space/theater. A stair-stepped ceiling enhances sound quality. Lighting includes incandescent and indirect pendant fixtures for evenly distributed lighting levels.
