Two 50,000 sf pre-engineered warehouses were designed to flank an existing 150,000 sf office building that was converted into a luxury fashion logistics headquarters for Stellae International.

The new warehouses, clad with MBCI metal panels and punctured with bands of polycarbonate sheets allow diffused light into the 33' high spaces. The angled cantilevered front facades provide a canopy above the recessed translucent walls, framing them with red ribboning panels that accentuate the entry facades which glow at night.

Stellae International Inc., is a luxury goods and fashion logistics company whose clients include major European and American fashion brands. The client’s sense of style and enthusiasm towards design and architecture as well as their hands on approach to every aspect of the project created a collaborative approach throughout the process.

The existing central structure was converted to warehouse spaces, production spaces, administrative offices, dining halls and lounge areas. The entire complex is connected via breezeways and courtyards that provide natural light and air. Bold accent colors were incorporated to create different zones within the building.
