Columbia Centre

The Columbia Centre is a commercial campus located in the suburbs of Chicago, consisting of three separate commercial buildings and two parking structures.  Currently all the various campus structures are fragmented and disjointed.  The overall site lacks the unifying cohesions necessary in any campus environment.  Building access points are poorly identified both for pedestrians and vehicles. The proposed design establishes a new entry for the site as well as reconnects the existing structures physically and visually through various interventions.  New materials are inserted into the existing pallet softening and contemporizing the overall look of the interior and exterior spaces.
