Three cubes, two of glass and one of granite, shifted and set into the trees. This building, designed for one of the first Fortune 500 companies to relocate to Fairfax County, helped set the tone of this nature-oriented business park. During the summer, the building doesn't exist, lost in the trees. During the winter, you can get a peak of the geometry, through the bare limbs.
Scale played a major part in the design, each cube relating to its users on a personal scale. The detailing is crisp; the materials of the skin are glass and Dakota Mahogany granite.
