Duke University Medical Center Medical Science Research Building III
The Medical Science Research Building III (MSRB III) features extended swing lab space, offices, meeting rooms and a cafe as a part of Genome Court Drive off of Research Drive on the Duke University Medical Center Campus. Surface 678 worked to enhance the streetscape of MSRB III by continuing the existing streetscape on the other side of the road that features trees and a plaza. Surface 678 and Perkins + Will worked together to create a seamless design experience between landscape and architecture, featuring a loggia and a paving pattern that begins outside, continues indoors and onto the ceiling design. The outdoor plantings feature hardy shrubs and trees with high durability and low maintenance.
