Project Narrative: DSM Machinery (a Gosiger Company) sells and services high end computerized numerical control (CNC) machine tools. The new 22,000 sf facility, located in Thorn Hill Industrial Park, features a merchandise showroom to accommodate equipment displays and operation seminars. The showroom has an open-bay design with eighteen foot overhead clearance to permit equipment demonstrations and free movement of heavy machinery. DSM's office spaces are separated from the showroom by a glass wall that provides thermal control and acoustic privacy, while offering a visual connection to the showroom

Rhythmic canopies and striping provide variations to the exterior facade of the building along the high-bay office/showroom. An angled entry element, clad in natural aluminum color panels, distinguishes DSM Machinery's space from other tenant occupancies.
