Design Achievement - Rapid growth and success prompted Sunlighten to renovate a former newspaper building into a beautiful headquarters facility celebrating health and wellness. DLR Group's design reuses the building's existing structure and envelope, but with significant improvements that convey a bright, inviting, progressive architectural identity for the company. Instead of a traditional showroom, the design employs a series of vignettes simulating a variety of environments such as a fitness center, hotel room, or outdoor patio to showcase their therapeutic products. Furthermore, office areas are supported by wellness amenities including a relaxation room, creative room, fitness center, outdoor patio, and kitchen.

Scope Summary - This project encompassed exterior and interior renovations of a 41,000 SF former newspaper building to accommodate office, amenity, spa, and showroom functions. In addition to the transformation of spaces, upgrades included new energy efficient glazing and high-tech exterior building signage. Interiors encompassed space for Sunlight Saunas on the second floor and part of the first floor, with the remainder of the first floor available for future office expansion or as lease space for another tenant. DLR Group provided architecture, interiors, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and landscape architecture services.
