In addition to the classic “Philly” moniker and being known as the city of brotherly love, “Cellicon Valley” is emerging as a popular nickname for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with many new genetic research firms establishing labs within the metropolis. Amicus Therapeutics, a biotechnology company that specializes in researching medications for rare metabolic diseases, recently opened their Global Research and Gene Therapy Center of Excellence in West Philadelphia’s University City neighborhood. Located near distinguished universities and hospitals, Amicus recruited CRB USA, an architecture, engineering, and construction firm dedicated to creating advanced science and technology facilities, to design a state-of-the-art office and laboratory.
Encompassing a total of 75,000 square feet, CRB devised an inviting, open space that celebrates the researchers and lab technicians by design. Scientists—often cooped up in artificially lit windowless labs—work surrounded by natural light and views of the Philadelphia skyline on the 13th and 14th floor of an urban high-rise. The royal blue of the Amicus logo is used as a bright color motif throughout the entire space, adding a lively edge via furniture, carpets, and transparent panel dividers.
