Ten years after designing Aerzen’s US headquarters using principles of lean manufacturing and organic / anthroposophic design, Re:Vision is working with Aerzen on a major expansion to add 15,000 sf of manufacturing and 8,000 sf of office space. Having designed the original building and site with a future expansion in mind, we are now able to take advantage of that foresight. As with the original building, corporate unity and employee wellness are underpinnings of the design. Bridging the gap between the office and warehouse expansions is a new employee collaboration hub featuring a high tech meeting room, library and café which opens up to a new central courtyard. Proven strategies from the original build, such as geo-thermal heat pumps and earth tubes, will be incorporated into the addition alongside new advances in enclosure technologies.
