Viera Office Building
Located in the heart of Central Florida’s high-tech corridor within a master-planned development, this office building promises to be the hub of a new town center. The project is comprised of four structures including a 65,000sf, four-story office building; a 2-level parking structure for 240 cars; an offset building core with connections to the parking garage on both levels. Landscaped areas will include seasonal gardens that help to define, organize, and connect the four spaces, providing communal areas for users and visitors alike. The typical office building floor covers an area of 70’ x 210’ and is based on a module of 5’ x 5’. The building core is offset to the north side of the office building in order to provide a more flexible office floor with elevators, stairs, restrooms, and mechanical areas. The ground floor, distinguished by the use of a native coquina stone cladding on columns and perimeter beams, is recessed from the facade above to create a covered walkway welcomed by a double-height entrance lobby along with leasable tenant space. The second and third levels can be subdivided into single or multiple tenant offices. The uppermost level will contain the corporate headquarters of a planned community developer and includes a 60’ long terrace that is deeply set-back for sun and weather protection. This set-back also helps to punctuate the building entrance below. Using a palette of architectural pre-cast, coquina stone, light-colored stucco, and a glazed curtain wall system in a carefully proportioned composition. The exterior cladding will provide a more human-scale to the building and allow the various building elements to better harmonize with its context.
