F5 Networks specializes in Application Delivery Network Technology. AAI designed a remarkable building transformation, inside and out, for the 70,000-sf space at 3545 N. First Street that is F5’s regional headquarters office. The collaborative design vision of AAI and F5, is communicated throughout the lobby, the International Technology Center, the open plan and collaboration areas, and the breakroom. Natural materials such as wood, concrete and glass, define the interior enhanced by graphics throughout.
The F5 International Technology Center (ITC) is a state-of-the-art facility that provides a real-world comprehensive environment to showcase, evaluate, and test F5 solutions and partner applications in the industry’s most comprehensive proof-of-concept lab. The ITC includes a world-class data center, a reception area at the main entry, 2 large conference rooms, a telepresence center, office area for ITC support personnel, a catering kitchen and restrooms. Softly curving glass walls and soffits provide a sense of flow and lend a spacious feel to the 6,500-sf facility. Open ceilings, polished concrete flooring, and white finishes and cabinetry provide a clean, modern space in which to showcase the F5 products. The backlit F5 logo beckons visitors in red metal from the far end of the reception area.
