Omaha, Nebraska

Completion Date: March 2010

Owner: Jeff Herdzina, US DATA Corporation

Program: A 5,000-square-foot office for an online data company, with a café, conference room, and gaming lounge.

Design concept and solution: The architects wanted to convey the client's technological identity while boosting the office's already close-knit atmosphere. The new design features a large, open bullpen of workstations and a conference room bounded by a glass wall etched with numerical sequences to signify streams of data. A bright green wall, jutting and folding at changing angles, defines the circulation through the office like a kind of origami canopy, and divides the workspaces from the public meeting rooms and café. Galvanized metal wall panels call to mind the sheds of the region's farms, evoking the company's Midwestern roots. 

Total construction cost: $140,000
