Analog Devices, a world leader in technology and solutions that intelligently sense, measure, and connect the world around us to the digital domain.

This 15,000m2 semiconductor product design facility accommodates 1,200 engineers. The design maximizes flexibility in planning, utilizing underfloor air distribution (first in the Philippines). Sustainable features include natural light, insulated glazing units, EIFS, rapidly renewable materials, bamboo and felt, 90% post-consumer recycled content carpet tiles and low VOC coatings and sealants.

The impact of the changing workforce generation propelled the design team to create a space that was smarter, more innovative, and full of collaboration. State of the art personal work technology and video conferencing was implemented in the conference rooms and lecture hall on all floors.

Furniture was chosen that would increase density from 1:1 to 1:2, to create hoteling stations and horizontal thinking. Furniture layout increased interaction locations, collaboration opportunities and pilot spaces that would become smaller scale models to introduce new concepts. In order to improve the physical surroundings and quality of life, access to natural light was provided via the glass curtain wall and a light well penetrating through the building. Indoor ventilation efficiency and air quality was improved by the first use of Under Floor Air Distribution design in the Philippines.

Interior materials were chosen to reflect the colorful biodiversity and abundant natural resources of the Philippines. Custom travertine floors created wayfinding while echoing the Banaue rice terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao. Custom bamboo panels were used in conjunction with bamboo “inspired” steel columns to merge the past, present and future. Felt walls were incorporated into the light wells to assist with wayfinding and sound absorption.

The site planning concept pays homage to the Philippine engineering traditions from the ancient rice terraces to the modern semiconductor. The water features that course through the garden symbolize the irrigation of the rice paddy as well as the flow of electrons through the semiconductor device.
