BioLegend’s new eight-acre headquarters features an amenity-rich campus setting and provides a diverse range of passive and active spaces at multiple scales. The design creates an array of campus environments that promote collaboration, innovation, respite, and recreation. The scale of the buildings, program elements, and open space adjacencies allow colleagues to work in concert with one other, which further reinforces a sense of community and culture within the company.
Every facet of the project is inspired by the science that drives the organization. A significant kinetic sculpture “BioBa”, designed by Jeffrey Laudenslager, anchors the front entry and greets employees and visitors as they arrive on campus. The project includes a central green which hosts numerous annual events and symposiums. The central green is framed by a game court, outdoor dining pavilion, campus garden, and shaded amphitheater.
An expansive green roof provides an elevated perch for gathering and team-building. The landscape design features a low water-use and climate appropriate plant palette and a series of interconnected treatment swales which reflect BioLegend’s commitment to sustainability and conservation.
