PROJECT DESCRIPTION

1200 Intrepid is a LEED Gold office building shaped by the encounter between Robert Stern’s master plan of rectangular city blocks and James Corner’s iconic, circular Central Green Park.

The building’s double curved, pre-cast concrete façade bows inwards to create a generous urban canopy that responds to the ‘shock wave’ of the park’s circular running track, activity pods and planting vignettes - rippling outwards like rings in water to invade the building’s footprint. Shaped by the city grid, the cornice and remaining elevations return to the orthogonal design of the Navy Yard's master plan, forming the building's double curve and melding the neighbourhood’s two dominant forms.

Referencing the Navy Yard’s maritime history while providing much needed natural light, a functioning periscope penetrates the core of the building, projecting views of the Navy Yard basin into the center of the elevator lobby. Visitors and employees can admire the mothballed ships sitting in the adjacent docks while embracing Central Green Park - connecting the building and its inhabitants to their surroundings.

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

The design for the 1200 Intrepid was developed pursuing LEED Gold certification.

Off-site fabrication was extensively used to create the rippling precast façade. The precast concrete panels helped reach LEED goal. They enhanced energy efficiency with their dense mass and provided a variety of manufacturing benefits. These included local manufacture using local materials, use of recycled and recyclable content, and reduction of construction waste.

Sweeping views of Central Green Park connect occupants to the environment that the building is designed to conserve. Using 20% less energy and 30% less water than typical offices, and without any landscaping irrigation, 1200 Intrepid does its part to protect the Delaware River and its watershed. The connection to the river doesn’t stop there – occupants can use the functioning lobby periscope to view the decommissioned navy ships next door. The periscope brings daylight into the building. Low-emitting internal finishes are used throughout the building.

1200 Intrepid was awarded LEED Gold certification in September 2016.
