A headquarters that lives the American Academy of Pediatrics’ values
The American Academy of Pediatrics needed a new headquarters. Their goal? Something more than just an office building—a space that enabled enhancements in pediatric health. Located on a 13-acre parcel in the southwest quadrant of the Hamilton Lakes Business Park in Itasca, Illinois, the new headquarters was designed to support 650 employees and a conference.
The building, centrally situated on the site, takes full advantage of its exposure to the sun. Patterns of glass panels and colored fins surround the façade, dynamically changing as both pedestrians and the sun move around the curved exterior. The building’s interior includes a member's lounge, fully-equipped nursing mother’s rooms, a fitness center, simulation studios, a focus group space, an outdoor meeting area, a cafeteria, a catering facility, a two-story atrium lobby, and centrally-located offices to provide all employees with equal access to daylight.
The design creates a flexible, innovative space that embraces the latest technologies to inspire employees and academy members—and to recruit the industry’s top talent.
