This building comfortably houses two main county agencies. The many offices of the Department of Human Services are organized into the top four floors of this building, while the offices of the Department of Entitlement Services are located on the ground and lower levels. The autonomy of these two departments required the design of identifiable, separate entrances. The concept of individual workstations within departmental clusters ideally enabled team working within an environment that also kept within its budget.
Our office was responsible for all interior planning, including custom millwork and furniture.
Reflective and tinted glass panels enclose this fireproofed, steel-frame structure. The height and configuration of this building were designed with sensitive consideration of an existing church across the street. At the time of its construction, this community office tower was the first of a number of buildings planned for this important urban renewal area. In the years since with further area development around this anchor building, this part of downtown Cleveland now proudly purports a successful rejuvenation.
