If you’re going to impress someone, the world’s largest retailer is a great place to start.

In this case, developer MDY Properties Inc., builder of Santa Clara’s Thirty75 Tech office building, attracted Amazon Web Services (AWS) while building out the property, nabbing a commitment from the company for the 238,400-square-foot structure’s top two floors in 2020.

Spying an angular design by Verse Design LA that included floor-to-ceiling glass walls, however, Amazon ultimately leased out the entire building and began moving in when Thirty75 Tech was completed last year. Looking to avoid the appearance of a prototypical glazed façade, Verse Design devised a shading system that included 28 panel variations of alloy airfoil-shaped louvers hung from a steel catwalk. In all, the louvers total almost nine miles of linear feet and required a mock up of the system to ensure that the final version wouldn’t rattle once it was installed.

With an exterior that welcomes visitors by eschewing any barriers and a seven-story parking structure purposely obscured on three sides by a “green screen” of native, draught-tolerant plants strung along an elaborate cable system, Thirty75 Tech also features a street presence apropos for a project that replaced a 1970s-era single-story office building and is a key cog in the redevelopment of what was a light-industrial area.

Featuring widened sidewalks around the building, Thirty75 Tech also adjoins a walkway network connecting pedestrians to the bike and walking paths along nearby San Tomas Aquino Creek.
