LG Electronics’ new North American headquarters will accommodate the company’s growing U.S. presence and showcase its innovative products.
The scenic, 27-acre campus is designed to protect the iconic vistas and integrity of the adjacent Palisades Interstate Park, a National Historic Landmark.
The horizontally aligned campus includes two elongated buildings housing up to 1,000 employees in executive and open-plan offices. Daylight reaches deep into the buildings’ workspaces, collaboration areas and dining rooms.
A custom, glass-enclosed “cube” links the two buildings and features an open atrium and showrooms to display LG’s extensive suite of products. Other amenities include a coffee bar, training and meeting spaces, and an educational science center for students.
To support employee health and wellness, the campus features a gym, a walking track around the entire site, and an outdoor basketball court. A two-acre green roof covers the base podium, offering employees access to outdoor spaces and plazas.
Rooftop solar panels will generate approximately 1,500 megawatt hours of electrical power annually. Sustainable site strategies include restoration and mitigation of five wetlands and the creation of a retention pond to reduce site runoff. The design team followed Audubon Society guidelines for bird protection and used indirect site lighting and automatic shades to mitigate light pollution.
