Hortica came to Balke Brown Transwestern wanting to create a professional office park that would combine nature's beauty with modern conveniences, technological innovation and highway access.
BBTW worked with them from the beginning of the project to complete a site selection survey and evaluation. They ultimately selected a 115 acre site at Interstate 55 and Illinois Route 143 in Edwardsville, Illinois.
The building is crowned by a greenhouse-style roof with translucent clerestory panels which filter light into a two-story atrium lobby. The read of the building overlooks a beautiful terraced garden and three-acre lake surrounded by a walking path.
