NATIONAL RURAL UTILITIES COOPERATIVE FINANCE CORPORATION

KGD Architecture provided due diligence, Masterplanning, and full-service architectural design to deliver a new headquarters building on a 42-acre campus for the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (NRUCFC).This new headquarters was designed to be a crossroads, where modern design intersects with traditional, and senior executives cross paths with employees and member organizations.

A main lobby through the traditional entryway leads visitors back to a 75′-foot high atrium ringed by executive offices. The east-facing facade has a columned portico reminiscent of Jeffersonian architecture, while the west-facing facade is composed of a modern glass curtain wall. The project was also designed to demonstrate to member organizations how a utility company can be energy-conscious and environmentally friendly through technological innovation and good design. The dichotomy is intended to symbolize the client’s ties to its rural roots and vision for the future. This project attained LEED® Gold for New Construction.
