U.S. Beet Sugar Association Interior Renovation

US Beet Sugar Association (USBS), representing member organizations of the US farmer beet sugar processing groups, desired a new Headquarter office space closer to Capitol Hill. The paramount programmatic requirement was a new conference room to accommodate thirty-five members and guests from Congress and the Federal agencies. To be showcased is a portion of an extensive library devoted to books on the story, science and legislation of US sugar industry, agri-business and farm commodity industry. Other considerations in the design was to assure a good flow for catered events and electronic presentations.

KCCT, as the design partner for the 2000 sq. ft. suite, worked on a compressed design and construction schedule of six months. Based on the suite’s configuration, the desirable location for the conference room was interior. Borrowing lighting from the exterior glazing with the introduction of a continuous glass clerestory, the room is bright and open. Architectural detailing and finish selections are sleek and in a neutral palette.
