The Vermont Teddy Bear Company hired TruexCullins to design a new home that would accommodate the company’s rapid growth. It was imperative to the owner that employees benefit from better working conditions and that interaction was encouraged between all the departments.
The solution was a building that suited every aspect of the company’s total operation. TruexCullins created a fun building in which to work and visit, giving tourists an entertaining experience close to the manufacturing process. The teddy bear factory contains diverse spaces, stairs, floors, doors and ramps built specifically to fulfill the requirements of diverse needs: administration, manufacturing, shipping, and public tours.
The result is a project that displays an expressive, playful design with articulated components that reflect the different functions of the building.
