NAVY YARD - BUILDING 18 ANNEX [PHILADELPHIA, PA]

 

Building 18 Annex, built in 1942, located in the Philadelphia Navy Yard, is part of Urban Outfitters' campus. Most recently, the Annex served as a parking garage and storage area.  

The adaptive reuse of this building now houses new office space for the Terrain staff and features layout and staging space in the aesthetic of the brand. Work spaces include group tables to encourage team work and large meeting spaces for department-wide collaboration. Custom workstations are fabricated in materials to reflect the industrial character of the building and the brand.

Large, first level spaces allow for product receiving with ample height to house furniture and home accessory staging, and six new photo & styling studios. A kitchen and meeting room support the staff working in these studios. Newly refreshed windows provide abundant daylight which is often utilized in creating ambiance in the photo shoots.
