TRO JB designed the interior for the 180,000 square foot headquarters of Schlumberger-Doll Research, a leading oil field services provider. The Cambridge campus connects to the surrounding university community, helping to achieve their main objective of a more collaborative and innovative research environment. The project consisted of the following components: a three-story winter garden, a 220-seat auditorium, a fitness center, a library, a full cafeteria with the necessary kitchen components, conference rooms, private offices, intern stations, 55 unique R&D labs and a think tank. TRO JB made sure to address vibration from vehicular traffic and freight trains, radio frequency interference from the subway, and equipment in nearby buildings. Upper floors were strengthened to withstand heavy lab equipment and the overall structural capacity was increased to accommodate the 15 ceiling-mounted, movable cranes throughout the building (required for moving lab equipment). An integral part of the design for this research facility was to create showcase labs. Glass walls now allow spectator viewing from several vantage points. Architectural gestures such as sloping walls, shifting forms, and a layering of materials imply the dynamic movement of tectonics. Materials like patinated copper, slate, porcelain tile, polished granite, and natural wood all contribute to the warm, earth-tined palette.
