Office of the Future
WELCOME HOME TO THE OFFICE
Some of us spend more time in the office than we do at home, and our office experience can change the way we live our lives; both professionally and personally. The best spaces have the ability to change our perspective and allow us to collaborate with others in healthy and creative ways. Frontier House brings a holistic approach of personal well-being and the comforts of home to the everyday office experience.
Open, light and airy communal areas mix with private and calming areas of refuge that mean a work environment suited for every person and every moment.
Frontier House embraces the many benefits of biophilic design: elements of nature and natural materials, such as natural light, plants and outdoor spaces. It’s a fully responsive space meant to adapt and grow with your business and your ever-changing team.
OPEN BY DESIGN
Utilizing an open floor plan with easy access to outdoor space and natural light that floods throughout, Frontier House is the next evolution in offices built for employee well-being. The balance of work and home life has never been easier with an environment that encourages the ability to change perspective and allow teams to come together and connect safely.
Scientifically proven to provide health benefits, our open floor plan with ample daylight and fresh air create endless options for people to engage with the office in new ways.
We are rethinking typical large open environments and replacing with space delineation, modular rooms, rich materials and organic textures to give people choices in how they interact with the office. Integration of smaller, more intimate spaces place focus on mental health and personal need. This is all part of a flexible framework that gives employees access to the entirety of the Frontier House ecosystem.
THOUGHTFUL & SUSTAINABLE
We’ve included an in-ceiling hydronic radiant heating and cooling system that uses geothermal energy derived from underground to both heat and cool the building, minimizing the need of traditional HVAC. This paired with a small array of solar panels on the roof allow for a highly efficient net zero energy building.
• Displacement Ventilation Systems
• Touchless Switches and Automatic Doors
• Energy Star Appliances and Two Button Toilets
• Double Glazed, Low-E Glass Windows
• Custom NanaWall Systems
• Low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
• Living Wall and Organic Plant Integration
We use passive building techniques to ensure an efficient and comfortable temperature no matter the time of year. Understanding the nuanced seasonality of Michigan’s climate and specific orientation of the building on the property are key factors in how efficient it will be.
