Parker Drilling

Houston, Texas

Parker Drilling contracted Ziegler Cooper Architects to provide design services for the recent relocation of their corporate headquarters to 5 Greenway Plaza, Houston TX. The design vision celebrates the culture and history of the 75 year old firm, and supports a focus on creating technically innovative drilling solutions in collaboration with other major energy companies across the globe.

Strong architectural forms grounded by rich colors convey warmth, stability, and professionalism. Sophisticated technology is fully integrated into the architecture and furnishings, in keeping with the firm’s commitment to collaboration and sharing of knowledge. An increased percentage of open plan with a universal open office size, and modular private office furniture were selected to adapt more easily to any future shifts in business direction.
