Platelet Biogenesis

Platelet Biogenesis

TRIA created a design that is both efficient and flexible throughout lab and office, which run the length of the building perimeter. Floor to ceiling windows provide ample sunlight with commanding views of the neighborhood and periodic glass walls between the lab and office spaces provide a collective visual connection, allowing for transparency amongst coworkers and potential clients. An exceptional design feature is the automated glass wall between the boardroom and adjacent café, which can disappear above the ceiling to create one large meeting space for all-hand gatherings. This element not only supports wider firm cohesion, but is a notable addition to the office, which speaks to Platelet’s unique culture and identity. TRIA extended this detailed approach to the laboratories, where great care was taken to enhance lab safety. Personal protective equipment, eye wash and safety showers are clearly visible; equipment such as biosafety cabinets, refrigerators, fume hoods and autoclaves are located for safety and energy efficiency. Lastly, entries to tissue culture rooms are hands-free to open powered doors, which reduces contamination.
