The Woodlands, Texas
Ziegler Cooper Architects was engaged by Nexeo Solutions, a global leader in chemicals, plastics composites distribution and environmental services, to design a 5-floor, 110,000 square foot, global headquarters. The relocation to 3 Waterway Square Place in the Woodlands Town Center centralizes all of the Company’s Houston staff, previously operating out of three office locations in the new global headquarters. Nexeo Solutions selected The Woodlands, a booming suburb of Houston and the #4 best-selling master-planned community in the US, for its new global headquarters to be closer to its customers and supply partners while providing a high quality of life for its employees.
The reception features a monochromatic aesthetic accented with the Nexeo green on backlit panels at the reception desk and on soft seating elements. Nexeo Solutions, a fast growing company, required flexible design solutions for its global headquarters. Largely open and highly collaborative concepts allow them to operate at optimum efficiency to accommodate both current and future needs. A centralized interconnecting staircase feature encourages collaboration between employees on multiple floors. Coffee areas on each floor repeat green backlit panel design elements and offer opportunities for impromptu meetings. State-of-the-art conference facilities serve as presentation or training areas. A large, dividable multi-purpose room accommodates multi-sized groups up to 167 people.
