In collaboration with Paul R. Sullivan Jr AIA LLC
The project objective was centered around a redesigned logo, and re-branding of the company image. The entire floor of their downtown toledo, ohio, 22,ooo sf office, was updated from its once dark, dated appearance to a bright inviting space.
The challenge of the project was incorporating the firm's highly traditional image with a modernized version of itself. Existing wood tones were used as inspiration, soft colors and lighter wall tones were utilized to increase a light airy feel, clean lines were introduced and incorporated with traditional moldings to create a timeless and welcoming space.
sight lines were key, as the existing, closed off, entry corridor and dark reception area were re-designed to offer an intuitive entry sequence that culminates in an iconic oval-shaped reception desk. Waiting and Reception Areas are now flooded with natural light from the nearly floor to ceiling glass partitions of the new Conference Center Area.
