Text description provided by the architects. Located at the prominent intersection of Blackman Road and Seminole in Springfield, Missouri, the R.B. Murray Company’s new office building serves to exemplify its client’s values of contemporary and sustainable architecture and development. Additionally, the building marks the entrance to a larger site development sharing these same values.

A distinguishing butterfly roof opens to allow a maximum amount of daylight into the building’s open offices, executive core, and conference rooms. The need for artificial lighting during the day is greatly reduced. The building’s “green” design also features natural ventilation, air filtration, and abundant views out to the landscape. Such features have the added benefit of improving the quality of the work environment and employee productivity.

Natural, recycled, and reclaimed materials are utilized as well. The building exhibits a warm aesthetic that is pleasing to both occupants and those passing by. The new R.B. Murray Company’s office building signifies the company’s forward thinking commitment to creating an architecturally progressive and environmentally conscious future.
