Toyota North American Headquarters

The design for the Toyota North American Headquarters in Plano, TX was inspired by the vision of bringing employees together onto one 100-acre campus, helping reinforce the company ethos of “One Toyota” as well as creating spaces to inspire and collaborate. Toyota’s core values encouraged the campus’ design, while the gestural nature of many automobile design drawings drove the layout.  Undulating lines and shapes create a wide variety of spaces and provide an adaptable landscape. 

Various programming has been implemented across the site to build connections throughout the core. A vehicular Auto Court offers a welcoming drop-off and pick-up location for visitors, as well as a vehicle display opportunity. The court is centered within a sculptural grove of evergreen trees to create a memorable experience both day & night. 

The campus encourages indoor/outdoor connections, with office buildings and garden terraces that sit next to a large central court. The central court, which serves as the heart of the campus, features a dramatic natural water feature which catches and stores stormwater for irrigation, as well as fixed benches, moveable café tables and chairs, and canopy trees that provide an abundance of shade. The amenity enriched landscape also includes a variety of other outdoor spaces, including a central green, which will support concerts, events, and other gatherings; outdoor meeting rooms; a fitness lawn; and a ½ mile decomposed granite trail that runs around the perimeter of the site. 

The design intent evokes the spirit of North Texas and focuses heavily on sustainability. Bio-swales collect stormwater from roads and parking lots to preemptively treat and reduce run-off that is released into the filtration and collection tanks. The planting utilizes native species that are adapted to the local environment and use little water. The greatest landscape planting gesture on the project is the significant amount of native Texas prairie restoration.
