Nikes new campus is the result
of a unique client/architect relationship. The client and
the architect introduced each other to their disparate careers:
the world of design and the business world of sports and fitness.
Four years after its design inception, the finished campus
reflects the cooperation among all of the projects participants.
The multiphased design and construction
process required a delivery method that ensured the highest
quality of design, construction, schedule, and cost control.
This required bringing the contractor into the design process
at an early stagethis partnering arrangement, encouraged
by the owner and embraced all team members, helped simplify
a complex and challenging project.
Landscapes range from natural wooded
areas to formal gardens. The buildings emphasize the spaces
in between them, and promote respect for the natural environment
while encouraging serendipitous social and professional gatherings.
The interiors reflect a need for efficiency and collaboration.
Throughout the campus, the companys signature branding
and iconography are powerful aesthetic features.
The campus consists of three new office
buildings totaling 375,000 square feet, along with a 450,000
square-foot product design/research and development center
containing two restaurants, a café, and a design library.
An athletic center, conference, and performing arts center,
as well as a 1500-car parking structure, complete the master
