The North-Carolina-based Wachovia Corporation, a subsidiary of Wells Fargo, has its headquarters in thriving Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Wachovia Park provides an additional 250,000 square feet of office space to the Wachovia headquarters complex there. The low-rise building complements the existing Wachovia Tower and defines a strong edge for Corpening Plaza.
Throughout the design process, the project team worked to create an employee-centered workspace. The building is richly detailed throughout, with cherry wall paneling and a custom-designed entry carpet. A skylit atrium containing fountains and tropical plants brings light and life into the heart of the office environment. Floor to ceiling windows overlook the adjacent public plaza and fountains, and the generous nine-and-a-half-foot ceilings help disseminate light throughout the office spaces, while also creating a more comfortable work setting. A deep, distinctive sunshade mitigates solar gain at the lower levels, while smaller horizontal fins on the upper floors similarly help to create a more comfortable, energy-efficient work environment.
