Building interiors are very much products of exterior design. Architects sought to develop a comfortable working environment inside and out for employees. The clean, precise building lines, accentuated by the ribbons of glass, accommodate an interior environment that is uncluttered and efficient. The bands of glass permit natural light to penetrate the buildings . . . and provide an unobstructed view of the outside.

Color schemes are designed to nurture a sense of spaciousness. Light colors on office ceilings and walls serve to lighten work spaces.

The site cafeteria incorporates some features that further enhance the overall sense of openness. The large dining area, which seats up to 1,200 persons, is lined on two sides with 14-foot-high panes of glass that provide a relaxing view of the landscaped exterior. Seating is also available in an adjacent shaded patio area outside. The cafeteria is also equipped with an overhead screen and rear-projection system for special audiovisual presentations.
