Juniper Lighting completed the restoration of a historic mill building in central Connecticut as its new headquarters, where it houses the company’s management, manufacturing, and design.
The move not only represents a milestone in Juniper’s fast, yet highly deliberate growth but also contributes vitally to the ongoing revitalisation of American manufacturing. The search for a new headquarters extended as far as New York’s Adirondacks region and Rhode Island. Madjarian and his colleagues were drawn to the tool factory’s architectural character, which is distinguished by inset bays, brick corbelling, and a layered cornice fabricated from granite gneiss quarried nearby.
Juniper’s values of innovation and craftsmanship informed its conservation and modernisation of the structure, which originally opened in 1926 as a tool factory. The Southington, Connecticut headquarters is outfitted with lighting installations of its iconic THIN, Axis, and Metropolis systems to celebrate the dialogue between the historic building and contemporary design.
