Raleigh, North Carolina
Software powerhouse Citrix has been a leader and innovator in the tech world. Recently, the company made a strategic move by relocating its offices to the warehouse district of Raleigh, NC. The warehouse district has enjoyed some media notoriety in the past few years. It was named by USA Today as one of the top 10 city art districts in 2014, making it an ideal location for the rapidly growing tech company.


Formerly a steel fabrication building, the red brick structure had been left abandoned for some time. Keeping the building’s past in mind, the architects and designers worked to incorporate elements of the space’s history in the updated, modern design. The most notable of these elements is the building’s dramatic, asymmetrical roof. The architects used the style of the roof to reflect the trendy and urban feel of the district.

The focal point of the Citrix building is the impressive gravity curved roof, with metal panels from Fabral. Fabral’s products were specified for the project by the architects for the price point, quality, and versatility of the company’s product offerings. The architects also appreciated the range of products and finishes available for the metal panels.

To achieve the desired look, the metal panels were rolled into the 18″ wide x 1.5″ tall mechanically locked roof panels. As an added design challenge, the panels had to be formed on site by a portable roll forming machine because of the size and scope of the project.

The roof itself has subtle industrial and open look, a nod to the nearby RDU Airport in Morrisville, North Carolina, which served as an inspiration for the design concept.Built to accommodate forecasted industry growth, the 130,000 sq. ft. office building space gives the company room to grow. The company hopes to use the new building as a recruiting tool in attracting new members to the workforce, with Fabral’s Bright Silver metal panels serving as the crowing jewel of the new location.
