Unity-Opto Factory Regeneration
CLIENT: UNITY OPTO TECHNOLOGY
CONSTRUCTION COST: CONFIDENTIAL
DESIGN ARCHITECT: BURGEONING
DESIGN CONSULTANT: ORIGIN CLASSICS
Unity Opto is a leading manufacturer of LED lights and fixtures. Their market presence and sophisticated use of R&D has given them a remarkable advantage within the industry. In order to showcase their company's strength, while enlarging their production facilities, Burgeoning + Origin Classics have designed a 21st century sustainable factory building. Rather than constructing a new, ground-up building, the client is interested in utilizing an existing building, and designing it as an adaptive reuse structure. By removing an energy-consuming facade, and adding floors to the structure, the client is able to accommodate larger factory programs, while utilizing lower amounts of energy when compared with factories of similar size and function.
