American Office Architecture

This page contains a selection of major American office architecture, with links to individual project pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key American offices, but building additions are always welcome.

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American office architecture. We aim to include US office projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US office buildings, new property designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the USA. The focus is on contemporary US offices but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of American Office Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

North Carolina Biotechnology Center, NC
Design: Perkins+Will
North Carolina Biotechnology Center Building

North Carolina Biotechnology Center
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center is an office building and conference center used to promote North Carolina to the biotechnology industry. Designed by Perkins+Will 16 years ago the existing building fits perfectly into its site, has a central gathering space that promotes community and is beloved by its users. Our first concern in designing an addition was to “do no harm”. After vetting many options a cylindrical tower with a minimal glass connector prevailed as an excellent complement to the existing composition.

Hearst Building
Completed in 2006, the 46-storey Hearst headquarters floats above an existing six-storey Art Deco building and has a progressive environmental strategy – the tower was the first occupied commercial building in New York City to achieve a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold rating.

Net Zero Building, Los Angeles, California

Net Zero Los Angeles Building
Inspiration for this building retrofit came from nature. The bio-inspired design aligns with HOK’s move to use sustainable systems thinking. The “Process Zero: Retrofit Resolution,” a retrofit design process, reduces the building’s overall energy demand by 84 percent while generating the remaining 16 percent on-site. The design uses proven energy conservation and renewal strategies, including atria and light wells that bring daylight into workspaces, integrated louvers for natural ventilation, a new facade with 35,000 square feet of photovoltaic film, 30,000 square feet of rooftop solar collectors that circulate water through floors to help with climate control, and office equipment operated by a cloud computing system.
