Test Research Inc. Headquarters
The project for Test Research, Inc. consists of two parts and will be built in two stages. Stage I: the Factory and Administration Building for the manufacture of automated testing equipment for PCB assembly and IC packaging. Stage II: Headquarters Building for Research, Development and Sales.
The design takes the form of a courtyard, with the Stage I Factory & Administration Building on the north side, a large garden court on the south side where the R & D Building sits in Stage II. The two structures will be connected by a low wing housing the main entrance lobby and conference rooms on the west side, and a loading/service area on the east. The courtyard in the center extends down to the basement level, next to the staff dining hall, providing a pleasant outdoor sunken courtyard which is further enlivened by multiple levels of planting and curtains of falling water.
Exterior design employs dark colored natural stone facing and Low-E glazing, in minimal and simple divisions with partial recesses to produce lively light and shadow play, expressing an image of elegance and vitality for the business enterprise.
