We’re office architects who have designed a wide range of office and commercial buildings. We have the complete team of architects, builders, surveyors and construction managers to both design and build sustainable, quality facilities. This is one of our most eye-catching office Design-Builds, and it won the Con/Steel Building of the Year award.

Hortica is a provider of insurance to greenhouse owners and other horticultural businesses. Hortica selected The Korte Company to design and build its new, two-story corporate headquarters in Edwardsville, Illinois. Two-thirds of the building is used by the insurance company, and the remaining one-third of the building is used for executive offices and the company’s other subsidiaries.

The complex features a center atrium concept with two flanking wings of office space. We built the office wings out of tilt-up concrete panels with punched windows. And the two-story open atrium is enclosed by a glass curtain wall at both front and back and is topped off with a greenhouse design reflecting Hortica’s core business. The glazed center atrium effect allows for a clear view from the entry through the building to the 3-1/2 acre lake behind, accented with a 40-foot geyser.

If you need eye-catching designs or value-engineered solutions that save money during construction, we can help. Learn more about architectural design from The Korte Company.
