Diamond V Headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa by ASK Studio.
The structure is the headquarters for a feed ingredient supplier. Their diverse clientele of local farmers and global business partners mandates a building that is a reflection of their value through propriety while representative of their place in the world market. The building is the face for the client’s existing mill. A spiral approach reveals the two structures, office and mill, through procession. The relationship of the buildings is apparent with the common materials, but the hierarchy is equally apparent. The industrial materiality and rhythm of the existing mill is reinterpreted as a refined assemblage of ribbon windows, an executive frame, and rhythmic mullions.
