SCB was chosen for both the architectural and interior design of the 162,000-square-foot, four-story, build-to-suit headquarters for Valvoline. The exterior and interior architecture communicates the 150-year heritage of the brand as a leader in the racing industry, while capturing the future of their technology and product innovation. SCB designed the building to be two elongated bars connected by a central interconnecting stair, which provides an open office environment filled with natural light and views of the surrounding landscape. The double-height lobby space houses Valvoline’s identity exhibitions, and car-themed wall décor and vehicular-shaped furniture highlight the company’s dedication to engine performance.

Key design drivers were to energize and galvanize employees by showcasing the brand’s power and facilitate healthy lifestyles for employees.

SCB created a space that supports a comfortable, healthy workplace while also providing a dynamic brand experience for visitors.
