  3. 3. Design concept  The Le*Nature’s world headquarters is the Physical manifestation of a company’s ideology and culture that helps to emphasize a branding and identity already established by a successful product line. Le*Nature’s has the opportunity to reintroduce and reinforce their “confidence in purity and quality” to Phoenix, Arizona and visitors worldwide with a state of the art facility. The facility is indeed a tribute to design, and community. The experience begins from views of the 141 and the 202 where the facility rises out of the landscape like an oasis out the desert lending the image of confidence and quality. Driving by the facility you would not recognize it as a typical manufacturing facility for it has the appearance of a high tech office building with a manufacturing component. The fact that people cannot clearly identify the type of building is a success in the presentation to the public. The facility is highlighted by a main lobby entrance that rises 40 feet out the ground with natural stone, stainless steal and glass. Providing a 360 deg. view of the Phoenix Marco environment including Sky harbor airport, downtown, camel back mountain, red rock and the rest of the valley of the sun. On the corners of the building are elliptical towers that soften the edges and add interest to the horizontal scale of the building. The elliptical corners also serve as an entrance to the facility for the community both local and world wide. The Facility is like no other facility of its kind in the world. Because of Le*Nature’s commitment to the community and its environment, the Design team went to great extremes to design a facility that would completely bring the workings and utilities of the Manufacturing on the inside. Interior mezzanine’s totaling more that 60,000 s.f. are home to every possible piece equipment that supports the process of the facility, out of sight from all aspects of the community either from the ground or the air. There is no roof top equipment and no exterior process piping. The only items that are on the outside of the facility are the ones that could not be inside the facility due to the functions of the equipment and the safety of people and the environment. We believe that the exterior product tanks and cooling towers are integrated pieces of the facility that provide a crucial life blood of the process and the fact that Le*Nature’s is a manufacturing facility.
