Nabisco Brands Technology Center

Sited behind a corporate office building in a residential neighborhood on a former golf course, the Nabisco Brands Technology Center is a 350,000 sq ft laboratory and office facility designed to take advantage of its context. The laboratories are organized into wings to provide maximum views (down the fairways), separate the research departments into neighborhoods, and reduce the scale of the building elements.

The juxtaposition of the metal and stone materials also helps to break down the scale of the building.  The “grain silo” at the juncture of the wings is both the staff cafeteria and a remembrance of the origin of Nabisco products. The enclosed offices of the office wing are pulled to the interior with glass walls so that all the workers can view the outside.
