Office Building as “Living Lab”
Wheaton Government Center | Wheaton, MD, USA

Held between two primary vehicular corridors, the Wheaton Office Building eschews conventional downtown office buildings with their glass curtainwalls and precast panels for a dynamic, rainscreen clad building that resonates with Wheaton’s industrial past. The facade is composed of an energy-efficient rainscreen system of Swisspearl panels in warm shades of orange and red and high-performance glazing. The roof is planted, and the site includes bio-retention areas that clean and filter storm water and surface runoff. The project was conceived as a catalyst for urban renewal in Wheaton and a symbol for the future of Montgomery County.
