This prototypical workspace serves as a model for future US government office buildings, transforming an existing 400,000 square foot building from a maze of dark workspaces into a dynamic workspace infused with natural light. Designed for 2,000 occupants, the building provides a complete simulacrum of an urban environment including interior streets, parks and squares (courtyards and atria), interior and exterior landscape, restaurant, canteens and cafe, exercise facility, assembly center, conference nodes and training complex. Heating and cooling is provided exclusively by a 300-well geothermal field located below the permeable parking - one of the largest fields in the country.
