Before CO designed a client’s new office space, the design team led the client through a Cultural Change Management process. Programming began with a Visioning Workshop, followed by crew meetings, during which the program and the characteristics of each space in the program were defined with increasing detail. Learn more about the process during the design of the Satellite Design & Prototyping Laboratory.
CO Architects worked closely with this client to transform their space into a functional, integrative and collaborative office environment with work showcased on a “tour route” for the public and their future clients.
Discover the story behind the innovative design concepts and program spaces found in the University of Arizona’s Health Sciences Innovation Building.
Just beneath the Urey Green pedestrian quad, at the edge of UC San Diego’s campus, lies one of the nation’s leading Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facilities. Learn how CO worked through challenges in the design and construction of the hidden NMR space that lives 30 feet below grade at UCSD’s Tata Hall for the Sciences.
Last week, CO celebrated the grand opening of the new lobby for the UCLA La Kretz Botany Building. The reimagined lobby space creates sight lines to the adjacent garden and brings to life a mosaic design from the building’s original architect, Paul Williams.The full renovation project will consolidate much of the EEB department within the Botany Building and make departmental research and teaching visible to the greater UCLA community.
Contemporary research engages teams of researchers working together to solve complex problems. Today’s laboratory facilities bring different scientific disciplines under one roof to create opportunities for collaboration and cross-disciplinary discovery. Yet physical laboratory space requirements often vary greatly among the disciplines, resulting in unique challenges in laboratory planning and programming.
