State College, PA
Corporate Campus Landscape Architecture
The global headquarters for RGA is an interactive and connective workplace that accommodates flexibility and growth opportunities. Set on a natural 17-acre site in Chesterfield, MO, the linked two-building campus provides office and amenity programs that will enable appropriate solutions for RGA’s different working styles and needs for future development.
The headquarters is integrated into the landscape in a sensitive manner that minimizes the impact of the development on the local ecosystems. The outdoor spaces maintain neighborly connectivity to the community of Chesterfield and a variety of places for employees to connect, interact, dine and work in comfortable and convenient locations. The private backyard consisting of a restored woodland and prairie landscape engages the site with framed views. The arrangement of the buildings on the site provides the main entrance off of Swingley Ridge Road, consisting of a formal landscaped arrival plaza that offers clear and easily understood access and circulation for visitors, staff, service, and emergency vehicles.
