GOLD, Healthcare

Emory’s Brain Health Center challenged our team to design a space with key stakeholders in creating a new, one-of-a-kind health program. The program is designed to create a holistic approach to empowering individuals diagnosed with MCI. The flexible, technology-infused space allows members to participate in activities to restore the aging process and promote cognitive function while providing caregivers strategies to better support independent living.  Our firm worked closely with Emory Brain Health and Georgia Institute of Technology to use evidence-based design principles to provide an optimal solution for the built environment.

SILVER, Hotels and Resorts

Located at the Battery, Aloft Atlanta is anchored in a mixed-use development (also designed by our firm) at a prominent sports venue. The guest experience is bold, open, and vibrant. Guests are beckoned to work individually or collectively in a lounge designed for productivity. As the workday winds down, the lobby becomes a spot to grab a signature cocktail before heading out for an evening at the live music venue, ballgame, or dining experience of the surrounding development.

SILVER, Healthcare

Located in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, Northside Hospital Sports Medicine is a storefront orthopedic practice that caters to amateur and professional athletes. The location on Piedmont Street, in a mixed-use high-rise, provides state-of-the-art care to the surrounding community. The evidence-based environment provides clear patient flow and supports staff processes. With restoration and healing as primary objectives, the use of natural light, soothing materials, unique furnishings, and welcoming finishes merge the design vision with project goals.

BRONZE, Corporate Office

Pandora/SiriusXM desired a new workplace that would allow for future growth of their engineering and sales departments. Working closely with the client, our design team developed a space that celebrates the company’s history and vision across multiple floors. Dynamic colors, surprising textures, musical flare, and diverse working environments were implemented throughout to create a memorable environment for both employees and visitors. Making all levels of the office accessible, a monumental staircase connects all departments to inspire collaboration across all teams and over 250 employees.
