As the Chesapeake Campus has developed, the architects created the concept of jewels.
These are unique works of architecture that complement the red brick buildings and add energy to the campus plan. All the buildings find inspiration from beautiful scale and proportion. They fit together and the spaces between buildings are as important as the structures themselves
The five-story, 252,000-square-foot cornerstone building based on its visibility and location and contains approximately 874 offices.
Each new building on the East Campus is glass and each will have a unique skin making each different and compatible as a part of the whole.
The white detailing, glass color and sun shading connect the East Campus together and the color white connects to the Historic Campus.
The concept for the glass skin reflects the idea of horizontal earth strata and the idea of vertical exploration.
The bay windows tact as lanterns of energy. One very memorable detail is the “lanterns” at the Southwest tip and the Southeast tip. They symbolize the “energy” and the “vision” of Chesapeake.
There is a focused visual connection and pedestrian connection to the Historical Campus and the linear park of the East Campus.
