J&J Worldwide Headquarters Nears Completion

April 20, 2017

Kimmerle Group – a Harding-based multifaceted architectural/design organization – announced that Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is currently building out the final two projects in the redesign of its world headquarters in New Brunswick, NJ. The pharmaceutical giant retainedKimmerle Newman Architects (KNA) last year to address its new master plan project at its 449,000-square-foot headquarters located at 1 Johnson & Johnson Plaza through nine separate projects, seven of which are now complete.

 J&J wanted to upgrade its original headquarters space, designed by architect I. M. Pei (leoh Ming Pei) by adding amenity areas such as: a Mobility Center; an onsite Starbucks Café; a hair/nail salon; and a new outdoor eating plaza connected to the cafeteria. All enhancements possessed a required sensitivity to the original design while instilling a modern amenity-driven workplace environment present throughout the headquarters today. Also, new spaces for TedX/content labs and human resource offices were part of the project, incorporating J&J’s constant forward thinking corporate concept.

KNA previously had completed a redesign of J&J’s global security command center enabling the company to monitor worldwide events and ensure the safety of its employees.

The award-winning Kimmerle Group is comprised of six divisions, each with complementary specialties, including Kimmerle Newman Architects, Urban Studio, Real Estate Services, Workspace, Project Management and Branding. The multidisciplinary team, which was named the 2016 AIA NJ Architecture Firm of the Year, has established an outstanding reputation for its design and development work in corporate architecture and interiors, education, healthcare, urban design and planning, industrial and retail, private and multifamily housing and historic preservation. Kimmerle Group possesses a national project footprint and is active in the Tri-state area and across the United States. The firm’s headquarters in Harding Township, NJ is an NJBIA Good Neighbor Award winner for 2017, and CPE’s 2016 Distinguished Achievement Award for Best Design. The firm is also located in the Chelsea Arts district of New York City with offices at West 20th and 6th Avenue.
