Building 322 Feasibility Study, Naval Base San Diego

San Diego, CA

AGS/Aetypic has provided as-needed services to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command for more than fifty projects in the past five years. Of all these projects, one of our greatest challenges has been designing the conversion of a large military warehouse facility into a modern Warfare Fleet Support Center.

We were charged with creating a lively and sustainable design for accommodating more than 700 military personnel in an open workstation configuration on one open floor. Moreover, the design had to accommodate a three-phase construction scenario. We were able to draw on our past experience designing offices for major San Francisco Bay Area hightech firms, where large numbers of computer-oriented employees are set to work in vast open-areas. We utilized creative ceiling and lighting schemes, diverse colors and fabric schemes, carpets and furniture finishes which, to the surprise and delight of the client, successfully brought the tech aesthetic into the military milieu.
