Credence Systems relocation into the Nimbus Oaks Business Park absorbed 75,000 s.f. of vacant space in three adjoining buildings. The design solution joined two of the buildings at an existing courtyard with a modern entry to symbolize Credence's corporate identity. The new entry welcomes visitors with an outdoor plaza, a cantilevered steel canopy and a façade clad in sleek aluminum panels that reflect the silvery blue Northwest sky. On the interior, the addition provides a modern reception area and public spaces that join the two buildings.
