MWA was responsible for the core and shell as well as the interior architecture of this design-build collaboration. The design provides a richly textured, respectful building with a forward-looking character, resulting in a much needed positive presence in the neighborhood. The office space is extremely efficient, flexible and incorporates plentiful natural light through generous exterior windows. The pre-cast concrete façade has a warm, golden color and is animated through sunshades and stone accents.
