Sustainable Design Award Winner
Project Name: Food Lion Corporate Office
Firm: Little Diversified Architectural Consulting
The client, one of the largest supermarket chains in the country, has undergone a huge transformation in recent years and required a new space to reflect this growth.
• This growth prompted a need for a headquarters expansion that would ultimately reinforce the core beliefs and values of the Fortune “500” leader with “small town” roots.
• The design team was pleased to be able to take full advantage of the voluminous vertical space within the warehouse, and a mezzanine was created to connect the space visually and utilize height of the space to stack program.
• The façade of the building was re-skinned with a focus on glass to allow for daylight to penetrate the environment and create an exuberant, light-filled interior.
• Various wood textures, warm color palettes, interior glass walls, mezzanine flooring and exposed ceilings integrated through the space begin to further reinforce the warm and friendly culture, as well as define a sense of community and connection.
