A leading green chemistry company approached Kao Design Group to renovate its laboratory and office space. The design is inspired by the aesthetics of laboratory work, using test tube lighting fixtures and graphics from microscopes. Within the deep interior of the building, color and supergraphics become wayfinding devices. Doors, windows and ceiling tiles are reused throughout the new space, minimizing construction waste.
