3150 Fairview Park is located in a high-end office park near the intersections of I-495, Route 50 and I-66 in Falls Church VA. The enclave contains approximately nine office buildings, including a large hotel at the heart of the complex.
The owners of the building originally developed it as a single tenant build-to-suit in 2001. The property contains the main eight story office building and a secondary three story parking garage. In order to keep up with changing tenant needs, the owner requested a major overhaul of the entry experience and amenity mix including; a full renovation of both the front and rear lobbies, the addition of a tenant clubroom, an enlarged and upgraded fitness center and modern conference facilities.
In order improve the entry experience through the heavily wood environment, the design showcases the main entry by enlarging the façade horizontally and vertically with metal clad & stone frames that capture a new double story entry. The new floor to ceiling glass brings in an abundance of natural light that floods both the front and rear lobbies enhancing the spaces.
To further improve the lobbies and provide a modern look feel, the design utilizes stone, wood and terrazzo finishes that are complimentary to the building and light in tone. The main lobby design also includes a dynamic linear opening at the first level which allows light to pour through the space and visually connect the clubroom to the conference area at the subterranean level.
The new design seamlessly incorporates new amenities and selective improvements into the existing building fabric to create a modern and fresh look for this aging gem.
