Novartis Office Building 335
Building 335 is a 140,000 square foot oncology office building at Novartis’ North American Headquarters. Five floors of open office work areas are connected by an ascending spiral of “living rooms” with vistas to the generous 230-acre campus.
Marked by wood finishes, column free spans, and clear glass, the "living rooms" provide a common ground for distinct project groups to interact. The primary work areas are light filled and are configured for maximum flexibility and interdisciplinary collaboration. Clad in a curtain wall of oscillating acid etched, reflective, and clear glass, the building mirrors the landscape and introduces an innovative paradigm for collaborative work.
The building is part of Novartis’ refreshed North American campus, which also includes buildings by Raphael Viñoly, Fumihiko Maki, and Vittorio Lampugnani.
Novartis Visitor Reception
The Visitor Reception Building for Novartis’ North American Headquarters presents a dynamic new gateway to the campus. The building emerges from the earth and includes a sequence of reception, orientation, and gathering spaces for the campus.
Above, the sculptural roof form with its pleated structural ceiling expresses Novartis’ spirit of technological innovation. A solar array canopy at the parking area provides a welcoming introduction to the Novartis Campus and contributes to the building’s LEED Gold status.
