The Summit

In recent years as unicorn tech companies have translated their brand identity into signature headquarters buildings, two typologies have emerged: the egalitarian campus and the powerful, unified icon.

For the masterplan’s central headquarters building, we propose to maintain these qualities by fitting a vertically arranged campus of office volumes into a singular, iconic envelope to create a natural “summit”.
