The massive renovation of the five-story, 110,000-square-foot (10,000-square-meter) office building in Iselin, New Jersey, USA was undertaken by architects KPF, with striking results: “Centra Metropark’s unique structure utilizes an asymmetrical tree-column and truss to support an extended fourth floor, providing a signature element for the project. A rectangular hole is carved in the center of the suspended fourth floor, allowing the sun to shower the ground-level grand entry plaza with light. Surrounding pyramidal landscape forms further distinguish the site“. Glass is the defining element for the deisgn, inspiring openness and dynamics.

With their futuristic approach, the architects managed to create a building that clearly stands out in its commercial neighborhood. The interiors are modern and minimalist, characterized by a simple color palette. The cantilevered rooftop covered in wood underneath adds an inviting touch to the main entrance area.  [Photographs: Michael Moran]
