UNOS Headquarters

Anchoring the northwest corner of the Virginia Biotechnology Research Park, this office building consolidates the client’s existing facilities into a single corporate headquarters. Influenced by the parcel’s unique shape and adjacent expressway interchange, the site planning strategy achieves two objectives; one, it balances the relationship of building to landscape by integrating a controlled / secured parking facility for UNOS, and two, it orients the building lengthwise along Third Street in order to create a buffer between the expressway interchange and a 10,000 square foot national memorial for organ and tissue donors. UNOS was the first building in the Mid-Atlantic to incorporate trespa cladding – an ecologically sensitive rainscreen made from recycled wood.Masonry, concrete, ground-face block, metal panel, and curtain wall comprise the balance of the material palette.
