Location: Cooper Surgical in Trumbull, Connecticut
Area: 77,700 Square Feet
Cooper Surgical first commissioned Antinozzi Associates in 2001 to relocate their 38,000 SF corporate headquarters from Shelton to Trumbull, CT. Over the next few years, the company continued to expand their services and their need for space. In 2007, we were asked back to assist in relocating their headquarters next door to 75 Corporate Drive, doubling their square footage since the first relocation.
The facility needed to fit their vision of a state-of-the-art destination that would increase collaboration, unify departments, and attract/retain a talented workforce. Integrating with a rocky and curved site, the solution was a 3-story all-glass curtain wall to reflect the surrounding forest and sky. Blue-colored shadow boxes (from their logo color) add depth and create a ‘home’ for employees. Visitors are welcomed by a 2-story front entrance lobby which incorporates a 1½ story stone tile focal wall with LED light strips that change color and messages to both visitors and employees. Maximizing daylight into interior spaces, responding to workstation/office standards (created by our firm during programming), lighting, color/finishes, exposed ductwork, and sound-absorbing ceiling “clouds” all played critical roles in the design of this building solution.
