Solvay Paperboard

The 7,800 SF addition is the corporate face of the company used to welcome national and international partners and customers. The new building is attached to one end of the 480,000 SF manufacturing complex. The design created a functional layout using the common program spaces at the center, private offices to the front and support spaces
towards the manufacturing building.

 

The program consisted of offices and a main entrance lobby to the administration building on the first level and to the mill on the second level.

 

The client required that the design feature the stair used by all company workers to access the mill via the second floor and that the elevator be located in a less visible but accessible location. The stair lobby is fully glazed and becomes a light beacon that annunciates the entrance for night shifts since the mill is a 24/7 operation. The metal used on the exterior wall was chosen to unify the new and existing buildings and to continue the industrial context.
