Gensler and Arcadis Team Up on Capital One’s Virginia Campus
2023 Best of Year Winner for Large Commercial Lobby/Amenity Space
The master plan for Capital One’s corporate campus initially called for one building on the Block A site in Tysons, Virginia. But Gensler proposed something different: two towers connected by a glass atrium. Encompassing floors 12 to 23, the 14,600-square-foot “sky lobby” now forms the buzzing heart of the bank’s headquarters. American black walnut frames and warms up the lofty space. Crisscrossing bridges house hospitality-esque lounge and conference areas by Arcadis. Two artist installations really make the project soar. Stretching across seven floors is Waves of Elevation, JD Deardourff’s swirling, multicolored mural depicting a topographical map of the Potomac River watershed, while Anne Patterson’s Ascendant Light, a steel cable–suspended installation of 55-foot-long satin ribbons, shimmers in blues and yellows, looks different from every angle, and gently sways as it spans six stories.
