Named for its butterfly-inspired angular canopies that adorn the project’s exterior, Folded Wings is a workplace campus designed by Form4 Architecture in the technology epicenter of Palo Alto, CA. The first consequential design decision was to create a welcoming, pedestrian-friendly urban plaza between within the complex of office buildings. The design’s lyrical intent is emphasized by a butterfly-form canopy that signals access to two levels of below-grade parking. Folded Wings’ overall appearance yields a form of humane modernism at the scale of the pedestrian. The design is counter to the typical notion of the Silicon Valley fortress campus where no one is allowed behind the gates. This site is open to the public as well as to the rest of the business park. Adjacent to walking and bike trails, the courtyard and park invite the local community to share the beauty.
Folding is the project’s leitmotif. Upon arrival from the underground parking garage, visitors encounter folded roofs and façades evocative of a butterfly’s organic form. These folds add texture and visual interest around the two-story buildings’ exteriors, exhibiting only slight variations. Angled roofs break the scale of the volumes into visually cohesive units that, when knitted together, add an architectural richness and variety to the massing. The symmetrical angling of two planes around an axis applied to the façade demonstrates that its repeated application yields architectural unity rather than a chaotic jumble of discrete design episodes.

The roofs cantilever over the floors beneath, shielding direct sunlight while creating a hypnotic interplay of light and shadow as sun rays hit exterior surfaces. These overhangs, along with cost-effective solar control methods, allow copious amounts of glass to be used while still maintaining the building’s energy-efficient design. Full-pane glass windows with modern clerestories flow balanced natural light into the office spaces. Echoing the butterfly forms and portals scattered in the landscape, an elegant abstraction in the form of a leaf inspired canopy—featuring fritted glass, specialized fittings, and a canted column—marks the main entrance to the building. Folded Wings’ dynamic mix of efficient and modern elements strives to communicate a culture of innovation. Contrasting materials and textures include glass, Accoya® wood, aluminum, and steel.

项目的核心是由Studio Five Design设计的公园式庭院，与建筑物的阳台和平台紧密呼应。这种室内外的互动旨在提高员工的生产力和留任率。省水地面和屋顶光伏板有助于LEED认证，其中，1号楼已荣获LEED金奖，2号楼的LEED评级待定。此外，该项目靠近多个公共交通站点以及自行车道和人行道，它对社区来说，是一个可持续且可信任的补充。
Folded Wings’ centerpiece, the park-like courtyard created with Studio Five Design, seamlessly interacts with the buildings’ balconies and decks. This interaction between indoors and outdoors is strategically designed to increase employee productivity and retention. Xeriscaped grounds and roof-top photovoltaic panels assist LEED certification—Building 1 was awarded LEED Gold. (Building 2’s LEED rating is pending.) Folded Wings’ proximity to several public transportation options and bike and pedestrian paths makes it a sustainable and responsible addition to the community.
