The Richards Group
Square Feet: 250,000
While many clients ask us to help promote a shift in their corporate culture, The Richards Group asked us to preserve theirs.
Perkins+Will was selected by The Richards Group to design their new corporate headquarters in the West Village area of Dallas, Texas. The 250,000 square foot building opened in 2015 and is designed to offer an office plan with maximum flexibility and openness by using an offset elevator core instead of a more conventional center-core layout. Central to the building design is a three-story stairwell atrium that encourages physical activity and allows the company to continue its long-standing tradition of “Stairwell Meetings”, the gathering of some 700 employees for important announcements and introductions.
A modern counterpoint to the iconic Cityplace Tower, the headquarters at Central Expressway and Blackburn Street is poised to create a memorable gateway into Downtown Dallas and to reinforce the energy of the West Village. The office space in the facility will include new design concepts such as “communities” of work stations to encourage collaboration among co-mingled teams. The new building will also include a fitness center, garden terrace, and 10,000 square feet of retail space.
