Jeld-Wen HeadquartersCharlotte, NC This new headquarters for Jeld-Wen, a major international manufacturer of windows and doors, created a state-of-the-art work environment focused on collaboration and transparency. The interior materials palette features wood, metal, and glass, all related to the Jeld-Wen brand and their product offerings. Accent lighting throughout the space draws the eye in various directions, showcasing not only the brand but the collaborative environment. A wide variety of seating and gathering options accommodate these diverse workflows. A two-story atrium at the entrance, anchored by a monumental stair, brings light deep into the interior. Expansive glazing throughout the floors not only brings light, but also ready views to the outdoors from nearly every interior space. A welcoming in-house cafe anchors informal gathering and conversation for both employees and visitors and features an operable wall extending the space to the outdoors.
