Sophisticated campus master planning requires a multi-faceted site analysis and a deep understanding of the needs and ambitions of the envisioned community. The campus model provides a human-scaled design that encourages communication, collegiality, and a healthy lifestyle by promoting walking both within the buildings and around the landscape of the site. Pickard Chilton weaves high-performance, sustainable design throughout all aspects of campus buildings and open spaces to further complement the surrounding natural environment.
Reimagining the Corporate Campus
Pickard Chilton has unparalleled experience master planning and designing corporate campuses for leading Fortune 500 clients, including ExxonMobil, Northwestern Mutual, Devon Energy, Norfolk Southern, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. We understand how architecture can fundamentally support the vision and values of an organization and its unique corporate culture. Our team endeavors to meet the specific architectural goals of a company that will allow it to recruit and retain the top talent in its highly competitive industry.
Fostering Community on the Academic Campus
Pickard Chilton approaches the design of an academic campus by first understanding the culture of the institution it will serve. With a rhythmic balance of inviting courtyards and more intimate verdant spaces, a well-designed campus can be intuitively navigated and engage the pedestrian with unique motifs to discover throughout. Large spaces, both exterior and interior, are designed to foster intra-campus learning, interaction, and socializing. Social hubs with innovative technology define the next-generation classroom, encouraging collaboration and flexibility across campus.
The workplace is changing. However, the origins of the changes we are now seeing in workplace design and strategy are fundamental, and actually predate the pandemic. Regardless of industry, the use of the workplace to attract and retain the best talent has been driving this movement across the country and the globe for many years. For companies to compete at the highest level, they need the best and brightest employees to support their vision and goals.
