Zone Enterprises, a national leader in custom engineered gaskets and seals, has chosen JEMA for the design of their new national headquarters. Working with Scott Zone, President and CEO, JEMA is transforming an existing historic industrial building into Zone’s new offices.
Our design team worked with Scott Zone and his colleagues to rethink the conventional office typology by setting new standards in adaptive re-use. Utilizing an existing north and south facing clerestory, the new space will require limited artificial lighting, dramatically reducing the office’s energy consumption. The building’s high bay structure is utilized by the creation of a new mezzanine where offices and a firm-wide collaboration space is located. The entry is highlighted by a precise laser-cut metal panel façade that symbolizes Zone’s products and their commitment to precision and quality.
