About the Project

Anchored in the idea that employees do their best work in a natural environment, the second phase of NVIDIA’s headquarters, Voyager, takes occupants on a journey of discovery.

Like in a natural landscape, navigation of the 750,000-square-foot space is intuitive. Enclosed rooms form literal landmarks, creating the backdrop for workspaces that open to the soaring ceiling and transparent exterior wall. The interior is organized around a central mountainous form that invites self-guided exploration. The “basecamp” at level one is comprised of communal areas, followed by ascending lab and multifunctional, rearrangeable spaces, culminating with a bar and food amenity. Around its perimeter are wide “valleys,” or walkways, that are interspersed with “cabins” for semi-private seating and small gatherings. The backside of the “mountain” be reconfigured into an auditorium for office-wide meetings, showcasing the space’s adaptability. Biophilic elements are woven throughout the interior, including living green walls that contribute to wayfinding.

To create the optimal setting for a less siloed workplace, the team took a specific approach to sound and light, resulting in a unique undulating roof shaped to bounce sound without reverberation and acoustical ceiling material to help absorb noise. The even distribution of natural light was addressed with the strategic placement of several triangular skylights – a nod to the wireframes at the heart of one of NVIDIA’s key businesses – that reduce reliance on electrical lighting and maximize daylight.

LEED v4 NC Gold Certified, Voyager is designed to support the health and sustainability of its surroundings. Water fixture efficiency enables a 37% savings in indoor potable water demand (75% if including water reuse), while PV panels on the building’s trellis produce approximately 50,000 watts of power.

A resilient space that immerses employees in nature, Voyager is a model of the workplace as a destination, not an obligation.

Just by looking at the pictures I am really interested in seeing this space. I want a tour!
