To further integrate their recent corporate brand refresh into a new 186,000 SF multipurpose facility designed by VDTA, SunPower requested that the design express the client’s commitment to renewable energy worldwide in the home, business and government, and power plant sectors throughout the interior of the new campus.
Integration of the division specific brand colors are used throughout the campus to highlight the various sectors achievements. Large wall graphics reveal a refined vision for the company’s brand and draw staff and visitors through the various programmatic spaces within the campus. Photo voltaic cell installation imagery and diagrams from around the world are showcased in over 50 conference rooms, the lobby, break rooms and training areas. A custom privacy film is placed on the interior glass wall surfaces taking inspiration from the arrangement of the solar cells on the company’s photovoltaic panels. Exterior and interior wayfinding are detailed to be an additional component that reflects the company’s brand. Overall, the project dynamically highlights the research and development for which SunPower is known for.
