The Challenge

What Makes the Next Gen Life Sciences Campus Recruit and Retain the World’s Top Research Talent?

Design & Geometry : Design for Occupant-Based Wellness

Transparent and welcoming architecture encourages an innate sense of comfort for the building occupants and the larger community. Creating connections to nature at the campus, building, and occupant levels boosts overall employee well-being by providing them with opportunities to detach from the artificial work environment.

Occupant health can also be enhanced through active and passive design strategies including open vertical circulation, open pathways, occupant thermal and light control, and increased ventilation and air filtration.

Facility: Rethink Standard Amenities

Utilizing bold design elements that align with the client’s mission, culture, and the community at large, the design should deliver creativity balanced with pragmatism and make a statement about Novavax, the immediate neighborhood, and the community of scientists and highly trained professionals who will occupy the space.
