Building a Community from the Ground Up

Pioneer Natural Resources, a quickly growing oil and gas company, decided a custom-designed, newly constructed building would best suit its business needs, forward-thinking corporate culture while bringing together its North Texas employees in one building. Located in the heart of Las Colinas, Pioneer Natural Resources tasked Corgan with designing a space that stimulates collaboration and creates efficiencies through departmental adjacencies. Throughout the interior design, weaved are traces of transparency, family, wellness, and collaboration, guided by Pioneer's values. To recognize the respect, humility, and values shared throughout the organization, Pioneer chose a number of their own employees to be a part of the design committee and represent the company's design process.

Encouraging communication across departments, the interior design facilitates flexible working and meeting styles, employee interaction and engagement, and provides ready access to nature as part of their everyday work environment. Located on a 35-acre property, the interior was designed to allow for more than 90% of the occupied spaces to have direct views of the outside, showcasing the lush mesquite trees, lake, and sweeping landscape. A roof garden connected to the building's conference rooms was also incorporated, allowing office workers to enjoy nature or have a team meeting in the fresh air.

Supporting Pioneer's commitment to the safety and health of their employees and the sustainability of the earth, the building interior was designed to optimize acoustics and light reflectance with Rockfon ceiling systems. Demonstrating its collaborative, innovative, and efficient operations, the 1.1 million-square-foot headquarters recently earned LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The over one-million-square-foot facility features a glass curtain wall and stone façade, fitness center, employee cafeteria, town hall, and daycare, along with a seven-story parking garage.


Technology, market disruptions, and social change are constantly rewriting the rules of the workplace. As businesses sprint into uncharted territories, we evolve and anticipate how these changes will impact the workplace.

At Corgan, we know agility is vital to problem solving. We listen deeply to our clients, conduct research, and evaluate all that's going on in the world. We build proactive teams — the right designers, the right researchers, the right experts in trends and strategy — deftly collaborating to create beautiful, relevant, and surprising solutions. One size does not fit all — our teams are nimble and customized for each project; the right expertise is brought in when needed, and off the team (and the invoice) when they’re not.

We solve complex problems with empathy, evidence, and inspiration. We are always, always dedicated to making sure our clients are ahead of the curve.

Furniture strategy is a plan of action designed to maximize the potential of your business with the physical tool that your team members interact with most: furniture. We guide our clients and work with each vendor to determine their best solution – rather than developing the solution first and asking each vendor to replicate it.
