Beckman Coulter Research Campus, Brea

We joined creative forces with Gensler Architects to revitalize the office and research campus of Beckman Coulter, a leading biomedical research and clinical diagnostics company. We developed a sustainable Masterplan for the thirty-four acre campus, located approximately forty minutes from downtown Los Angeles.

Within the center of the campus we created a Park environment for the employees, with a meandering walk that links new recreational spaces including: a shuffleboard court, a bocce court, ping pong tables, a putting green, and a giant chess board. An outdoor amphitheater for large corporate events provides seating for over a hundred people. Two outdoor cafe areas were crafted to promote employee interaction.

The goal of enhancing the quality of life for the employees at Beckman Coulter was accomplished through providing access to a restorative landscape where employees can dine under the shade of trees and canopies, take a break to engage in light recreation, and stroll along paths bordered by lush planting.
