  • ORNL Northshore Headquarters

Key design features include decorative wood ceilings that highlight key areas for members and employees, as well as the use of natural materials.

Because this building is both member and employee-facing, it was important to design a space that accommodates both groups.

The first floor features all member-facing areas, including a large branch and training space for the community. The branch features state-of-the-art banking equipment, integrated technology, and various amenities for its members to enjoy. The second and third floors are dedicated spaces for employees. These floors take advantage of a central open office layout, with glass front offices along one perimeter. The workstations are paired with conference rooms and open cove spaces that support a variety of work postures.

Throughout the building, wood and stone are used on both the interior and exterior to add warmth and depth to the design.

A variety of floor materials and patterns were used to highlight different areas of the building, as well as to improve circulation. Overall, this project is a beautiful yet functional space for ORNL members and employees.

  • From the beginning, the team at Design Collaborative lived up to their name – it was a collaborative process focused on the desired outcomes. The DC team engaged us early and often working sessions to ensure that all aspects of the operation were smartly considered in the design, functionality and appearance of the building (both inside and out). The DC team coordinated with all partners throughout the process to ensure that both timelines and budgets were managed appropriately. Upon completion, we have received positive dieback from members, employees and the community, so the project was a success!
