An unusual discovery of an abandoned concrete building shell was waiting for the right moment and a creative team of people to breathe new life into it.

​Situated on a quiet residential block lined with red brick houses, the Office Center adds a splash of color and a playful yet serious character.

​After sunset, a warm glow of the four-story tall atrium helps make the neighborhood more inviting.  The scale and massing, comparable to the neighboring buildings, fits into the context of the area, and creates a unimposing link between the residential and commercial sectors.
