Pearl Izumi North American Corporate Headquarters, Louisville, United States
Arch11 Inc. | ZGF Architects LLP

A minimal palette of concrete, glass, wood, and naturally weathering steel forms an intentionally raw background to the vibrant and innovative outdoor sports products being developed within the new 55,000 SF Pearl Izumi North American Headquarters in Louisville, Colorado. Burrowing into the landscape, the building’s intuitive angles and triplicate clerestories, representing Pearl Izumi’s “Ride-Tri-Run” motto, reflect the sharp Flatirons, and bring daylight and natural ventilation far into the workspace year-round, while providing unobstructed views to the outdoors. The design is purposely rough, inside and out; expressing the dynamic and elegant simplicity of a modern “design barn.” Product design and development are at the core of the flexible open workspace, and are visually connected to a mezzanine loft, collaboration spaces, conference rooms, and the Shimano Experience Center. High ceilings, abundant natural light, ideal solar orientation, and natural ventilation throughout invite the vast Colorado outdoors in, creating a sustainable, comfortable, and inspiring work environment.
