Location: Elkhart, Indiana
Design: Leedy Cripe Architects
Scope: New Manufacturing Facility and Office
This 125,880-square-foot watercraft manufacturing facility in Elkhart, Indiana consists of a design-build Butler pre-engineered steel building with a conventional office utilizing a mix of brick, limestone and metal panels.
The two-story office, with more than 25,000 square feet, holds several unique spaces and features, such as freestanding steel stairs and a second story conference room with panoramic views of the grounds. The offices on both floors were designed around the perimeter to take advantage of natural light, placing common spaces in the center.
Another unique feature is a 14-foot square pyramid skylight over the expansive two-story atrium.
