KWS Gateway Research Center

Laboratory for global plant research

Down

KWS Gateway Research Center

St. Louis, Missouri

This North American research center for KWS SAAT AG, one of the world’s leading plant breeding companies, is located in BRDG Park in St. Louis. It includes a molecular research lab, transformation lab, growth chambers, and central lab support.

We designed the space to achieve a number of goals including transparency between lab and work spaces, flexibility to reconfigure work spaces, creation of a platform to support an intensely collaborative work process, and access to natural light throughout. Lead scientists occupy an open work space with furniture configured in flexible pods, supported by adjacent conference rooms. Write-up and break areas have both window access and clear views into the open labs.
