As Radnor’s first new workspace development in almost 30 years, 155 Radnor recognizes that the way we define work has changed. Designed around the theory that people possess an evolutionary affinity for nature that is vital to human health and well-being, the architecture of 155 Radnor is intrinsically linked to the natural environment.
The design integrates the 145,000 SF, 4-story building into its surrounding landscape, blurring the distinction between inside and outside. Floor-to-ceiling glass brings light and views inside, while landscaped gardens, walking paths and seating areas invite occupants outdoors. Folding glass walls allow the lobby to open onto an activated outdoor courtyard, and a 100-person conference center features glass walls with views out to the landscape.
The material palette is inspired by nature, with warm tones and natural textures. In the lobby, inviting furniture, intimate lighting and a fireplace create a cozy refuge punctuated with plants and natural light.
An open staircase motivates employees to bypass the elevator.
Three upper floors of office space feature floor-to-ceiling windows, 10-foot ceilings, and a mechanical design that allows for a clutter-free exposed ceiling. The design intent is to expose the building’s structure to its occupants, furthering the architectural vision of transparency. Designed to meet WELL and Fitwel criteria, the building is setting a new standard for workplace wellness.
