Case Study

JPMorgan Chase Regional HeadquartersA Collaborative, Interactive & Engaged Corporate Campus

Plano, Texas, USA

The Challenge

To design a regional headquarters that attracts and retains top employees to its collaborative, interactive and engaged corporate campus with a design inspired by Texas art and landscape.

The Design Solution

The new JPMorgan Chase regional headquarters is a 50-acre campus with three office buildings built to accommodate 6,000 employees. The campus features contemporary amenities including a wellness center, a child care center, multiple art installations, a cafeteria, a Starbucks, and public plazas between buildings. The sustainably-designed campus is LEED Gold certified.

Donald Judd, the minimal artist known for his landscape installations in Marfa, Texas, was the inspiration behind the workplace interiors. Quoting Judd, HKS designers sought to use “just enough design to solve the problem at hand.” Raw materials such as steel and an exposed concrete structure provide a backdrop for artistic details including florescent tube lights, a nod to Judd’s friend, modern artist Dan Flavin.

The Design Impact

With the new headquarters, Chase now joins Liberty Mutual Insurance, Toyota and FedEx Office as large employers at Legacy West. More than 15,000 people are expected to eventually work at Legacy West, which would make it one of the large job sites in Texas.
