Hayden Homes Service Center

Trinity Lutheran Independent School

About the Project

Client: Hayden Enterprises
Use: Corporate headquarters
Type: Remodel of a warehouse into administrative offices
Size: 35,000 square feet
Contractor: Hayden Enterprises

The client, which develops residential subdivisions as Hayden Homes, purchased a warehouse in Redmond, Oregon, as the location of its corporate headquarters and operations center.

Several design challenges presented themselves: how to give a nondescript warehouse an identity; what to do with the 20-foot volume of the interior; and how to create an engaging interior space when the building footprint exceeds a typical office building width. The design team at SĀJ Architecture answered these challenges with several unique design features. Our design included recladding the building’s exterior with new materials for more finished appearance. This also allowed us to reorient the building entrance to the street. Additional elements such as windows and a new canopy help to reduce the visual height of the building and serve as wayfinding for employees and visitors. A new multilevel mezzanine solves the interior space scale by providing an organizing element. Enclosed meeting spaces and offices on the perimeter and mezzanine allow for collaborative or independent work in acoustically separated spaces. A 5,400-square-foot storage area supports the company’s operational need for bulky storage.
