Analog Devices – Interior Architecture Photography

Four years after photographing Analog Devices’ downtown Raleigh space for CPL, once again we collaborated to document their new offices in Durham, North Carolina.

The new offices and labs are located in the revitalized Park Point office campus.  This is the building in which Analog occupies two entire floors wrapping around a central courtyard space flooded with a bevy of natural light from above.  Looking across below you can see graphics and logo designed by CPL with laboratories below and office above, with “exterior” staircase on the left.

The blue and white pattern of graphics is carried into the reception area on the second floor.  The reception desk masses with guest conference meeting rooms and workspaces.  To the right are sitting areas and of course, ping pong.  Transparency into the courtyard from adjacent spaces and seeing across remains essential throughout both floors.

You can see the layering transitioning from relief graphics wall to interior space to fenestration into the courtyard.

I really liked the carpet pick for these spaces, dynamic without being too overpowering.  This is the main conference room from which again one can see into the courtyard and across.

Office spaces are wide open with cubicle bays, divided by break areas, conference rooms, private offices and pathways.

There was an obvious focus on transparency, witnessing activity by implementing as few dividing walls and visually enclosed spaces as possible.

The wood work in the break room is striking, right?  These are the same light fixtures used in the Belmont Recreational Center multipurpose space.  It’s quite a combination of natural clerestory light and architectural lighting.  Setting up this shot to perfectly line up all the furniture took about an hour.

Back on the first floor, there is  an alternative entry directly into Analog Devices’ laboratory spaces and offices.  One is below through the blue-encased opening, and the second by staircase sitting above it.  As you can tell, it’s quite an interesting combination of graphic relief continued by painted graphics on the storefront windows.

These graphics cast pretty neat patterns inside the adjacent lab.

Even among the mass of laboratories, transparency and being able to see in is retained throughout that programming.

I won’t pretend to comprehend what all the electronic stuff is, I’m just a photographer.  🙂

Another fun and interesting shoot with CPL, it’s been fantastic working with them through the years and especially in 2023.
