NASA Central Campus Headquarters
HuntonBrady was commissioned to design the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s new 200,000 SF headquarters at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, replacing several existing facilities built in the 1960s. NASA is entering a new era that focuses on long-range exploration and partnerships with the private space industry for low-orbit missions. The agency’s consolidation into a new facility provides a more efficient, flexible, and connected environment supported by new technology in a highly sustainable environment.
The sail-like icon contains vertical circulation as well as lobby and conference areas and is a recognizable reference point in the Kennedy Space Center complex. The office wing is a modular, column-free space designed for maximum flexibility and change. It allows controlled daylighting into work areas and captures dramatic views of the launch pads to the north and east.
The master plan allowed for the addition of future buildings organized around a campus green. Ultimately, the new headquarters will anchor Kennedy Space Center’s administrative and operational hub.
