#buildingoftheweek – Samsung US Headquarters, San Jose

In this week’s installment of Building of the Week, we bring you 3655 N First St, San Jose, California – Samsung’s US headquarters.

The most noticeable feature of this building that was picked up by Tensorflight’s tools is the installation of solar panels on the roof. The panels are placed in such a way that they’re always receiving light and are not shaded by other roof features. 

The 10-story building has a footprint area of 79,182 square ft and an estimated floor area of square 580,501 ft. Listed as a high-rise office, the building was completed in 2015 and is made predominantly from steel. Roof geometry is flat, complementing the performance of the earlier-mentioned solar panels. Worth to note, there’s also a tennis court on the roof.

Being in California, the Samsung HQ building complies with some of the most stringent and safest building codes in the country.
