Juniper Networks is a provider of networking solutions headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. For an office in New Jersey, Juniper leased 16,000 square feet in a large office park thirty minutes outside of New York City. The space needed to serve as a showroom and collaborative center for the company’s east coast clients and partners, so it was crucial that it express the company’s unique and innovative culture. Visitors are greeted by a large elliptical form anchoring a welcome space with an inconspicuously located reception desk off to one side. An unobstructed ribbon of windows showcase the forested Watchung Hills beyond. Juniper’s logo is centered on the elliptical form that contains a board room space. The perforated ceiling plane throughout the public space is inspired by the blinking lights of the company’s rack-mounted equipment. Light fixtures shine down through custom perforated aluminum ceiling panels, creating a cinematic experience as people move through the space. The panels are part of a standard lay-in system, but with an irregular, digitally fabricated custom pattern of square perforations.
