Architect Wesley Kean, principal and founder of KoDA, has always been passionate about environment. In his design practice, he’s focused on improving the well-being of those who inhabit and experience his buildings by using architecture as a way to reconnect them with the physical and sociological benefits of nature. Together with his team of architects and designers, Kean is connecting architecture with nature and finding radical solutions to sea-level rise and other environmental concerns conducive to South Florida.
Aviation Resource Group is getting a new office just west of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that will integrate nature into the workplace. Design firm KoDA of Miami Beach is contrasting the 3,300-square-foot building’s rigid steel structure with the gumbo-limbo trees and century-old oaks on the site. A central courtyard allows for maximum daylight, transparency and visual connectivity.
KoDa is bringing nature into the workplace for the design of the new headquarters for Aviation Resource Group, a company that provides a unique portfolio of aviation services. Located in Dania Beach, KoDA’s design breaks from corporate tradition and creates a space that promotes productivity, collaboration and well-being.
