Chiron America North American Headquarters

Charlotte, NC

This project quickly earned the nickname "The House for the Machines that make Machines". The design for Chiron America's North American headquarters is a fitting solution, combining all of the industrial, office, museum, and showroom elements into a 53,000 sqft machine-like metal clad form. The design won top prize of the 2004 AIA Charlotte Design Awards Competition – “The jury appreciated this large corporate office and manufacturing facility for clarity in its planning and for the explicit use of architecture as part of the company's identity”. — 2004 AIA Charlotte, Jury Comments
