This project brings together the building typologies of a warehouse and an office. Warehouse space is open, column-free space that allows for the unimpeded storage of goods while office space is compartmentalized space for employees. In the past, companies would have their employees work apart from the storage of their products and goods. Today, economic pressures have forced businesses to consolidate their operations under one roof. This design integrates these operations into a single structure with the office serving as the facade to the business and incorporating the logistics of the warehouse. The site currently has an existing 12,000 square foot warehouse. This warehouse serves only as a storage space and does not make accommodations for companies who would like to have some office space. This proposal expands the existing warehouse, providing office space and more than doubling its original storage space. As there is a need to maximize space efficiencies, the resulting ratio of office space to warehouse space is approximately 1 to 7.
