A central theme of connectedness permeates the campus.
The primary concept behind this campus design emerged from a vision of workspaces arranged around a central courtyard, naturally sculpted from the contours of a creek bed. Honoring the natural landscape and site features, the campus celebrates the special placemaking qualities of the original ecology. Internally, the seven-building campus incorporates a network of connecting paths, interstitial courtyards, green roofs, and shaded loggias that intersect at public spaces, fostering a connected, pedestrian-friendly environment.
Generating enough on-site electricity to power 1/3 of the campus.
The LEED Platinum campus incorporates an 8.8 megawatt photovoltaic canopy, including over 20,000 individual solar panels, which stands as the largest corporate installation in the State of Texas. And through the combination of a 400,000-gallon rainwater collection system, fixture efficiency, and drought tolerant native plantings, the campus conserves approximately 20 million gallons of water each year.
All the things employees could want and need.
The amenity-rich campus features an 850-person dining commons, 22,000-square-foot fitness center, 36,000-square-foot multi-purpose center, 500-person gathering space, experience center, healthcare clinic, pharmacy, and parking structures to house 10,000 cars. The major amenities are supported by additional dining, juice bar, knowledge center, and retail.
Further building on the idea of "connectedness," employees are intuitively drawn together indoors.
At the heart of each building is a central interconnecting stair within a generous light well, with break areas and informal meeting areas arranged nearby the encourage team collaboration. Each floor features various types of group-focused spaces, all outfitted with technology, and a ‘hackable’ collaborative area is located on every level, where teams can arrange various furnishings to support their style of work.
Using a kit-of-parts for maximum flexibility.
Being focused on continuous improvement, which includes being able to flex and change as their business evolves, Corgan created a typology of work styles specific to Toyota. We developed a 13-piece, reconfigurable kit-of-parts which could be customized for eight different work styles.
Toyota opted to narrow down the offering to four types:
1 — Universal, for most team members.
2 — Storage, best for work groups requiring paper, like HR or legal.
3 — Collaborative, ideal for groups that need access to adjacent team members, like sales.
4 — Object, for groups that have objects or parts, such as engineers.
Infusing Toyota's employee-focused culture and future-forward vision through environmental branding.
Toyota was going through a corporate reorganization while simultaneously building this new headquarters campus. The company knew there was strength in bringing employees from across the country together under one roof. The vision: One Toyota — one location, one culture, one brand. Corgan partnered with Brand Hatchery to integrate elements to drive this vision, to energize employees, to create loyalty, pride, and to promote innovation through connectedness.
