Juniper Networks: Open Lab was recently honored with a 2012 Interior Architecture Award by AIA Chicago and named a 2012 Interior Design Magazine, Best of Year Awards, Honoree. The Open Lab, designed by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, serves as the main showcase where the company’s engineers exhibit their routers and other networking equipment to clients and partners. Strong wood volumes define welcome and leisure zones and glass walls act as semi-visible spatial buffers. The procession through the office is heightened through the use of a spine of custom light towers and a perforated ceiling tile that generates a cinematic filtering of light. Utilizing a constrained color palette and integrating environment graphics the Juniper brand identity is incorporated into every layer of the space.
