As a young company moving into its first office, NextLight desired a space to reflect their mission and business goals, be functional and allow for growth. The design process was initiated through a highly collaborative visioning session where Huntsman met with the new executives to explore drivers other than business goals. The objective was then to create an environment that attracts top talent and has the flexibility to adjust to changing needs. It was met by placing staff together in clusters of open workstations that would support team projects. NextLight's suggestion was to utilize glazing to make visual connections throughout the office. Private offices were placed along the building's core in order to maximize the open plan. A pivotal design feature is an eyebrow that contains these offices and mimics the arc of a sundial sweeping through the floor.
