Project Size
30,000 SF
Burt’s Bees World Headquarters is positioned in the heart of the American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham, North Carolina. Dedicated to creating pure, natural products that work in harmony with your skin, Burt’s Bees tapped Alliance Architecture to renovate their space in a manner that not only bolsters their corporate mission but also illustrates the rich corporate history dating back to its founders, Burt and Roxanne. Having designed the original space, Alliance was highly familiar with the site and its significance to the organization. We took it to the next level by weaving these unique cultural elements into the space. We designed features such as a live-edge shelf addition to the reception desk, a living green-wall centered on the main wall, and large-scale graphics of Burt and Roxanne to yield the inspirational working environment. Hints of “Burt’s Bees Yellow” were strategically added throughout the space, naturally complementing the lipstick-inspired tones found in the pillows that accent the tiered collaborative seating. Exterior and interior signage was installed, further showcasing their brand. Innovation and ingenuity greet team members and guests at the door, allowing them to experience the company beyond their physical products.
