  • Year 2013
  • Location Dulles, Virginia, United States,
  • Industry Hardware / Software Development,
  • KGD Architecture has recently completed the design of a new Dulles, Virginia headquarters for software and engineering company IAI.

    The design of IAI’s headquarters conveys the culture of a company whose employees are steeped in challenging analysis and mathematical formulae. The notion that innovation occurs in great workspaces was demonstrated through various design features. For example, IAI’s mission statement and values were laser-cut in binary code and backlit to create feature panels throughout the space. Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) space was designed such that even though the space is sealed, it is still inviting and conveys a sense of excitement.
