Knox Company Headquarters
Headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., the Knox Company manufactures rapid-entry systems — products that allow emergency services personnel to enter buildings safely, quickly and easily in time-sensitive situations.
Recently, the company wanted to remodel half of its 80,000-square-foot facility to be more contemporary. Since Knox Company had been founded in the coastal town of Newport Beach, Calif., management looked to the ocean as a source of inspiration. In designing the new interior, Balmer Architectural Group proposed adding waves of light to the building’s main hallway and into a cafeteria/break room.
