The VMware campus is a 460,000-sq.-ft. office complex consisting of five, two-story buildings that house an executive area, data center, cafeteria, fitness center and complex landscaping. The shell is steel and concrete with a plaster, metal panel, and storefront skin system.
Situated on a 37-acre site in Palo Alto's prestigious Stanford Research Park, the property features vistas, dozens of mature trees, generous landscape setbacks, and mature landscape areas. The buildings circle a large central courtyard that serves as the heart of the VMware community.
This project implemented a number of sustainable and community-minded decisions:
- operable windows
- natural day-lighting
- environmentally friendly material selection
- recycled material from demolition
