City Architecture engaged with a local healthcare system to create a high-end membership-based medical office within an urban core. This newly conceived business model required an interactive design approach between the client and designers to ensure a serene and comfortable environment was created. The project consists of an office build-out within an existing building shell to create a calming oasis that is easily accessible to patients.
Renovation Project of the Year- NAIOP Awards of Excellence
The NewBridge Center for Arts and Technology was made possible by the creative adaptive re-use of a former office and warehouse building. Facilities were created for disadvantaged youth to learn life and career skills such as computer technology, digital photography, film and sound editing and ceramic arts.
The facility also includes spaces for post high school classes to provide job skills within the local market, and incorporates computer information technology labs. Medical training is conducted in high-tech labs that offer hands-on experiences for pharmaceutical technicians and phlebotomy programs.
LEED Silver certification (Commercial Interiors program) is achieved through the selection of building materials, recycling of demolition waste and integration of new efficient mechanical systems. NewBridge's success as a community asset is accentuated by its location - providing new learning opportunities within the city's core.
St. Clair Office Building
Tyler Village Campus
Renovation of the Year - NAIOP Northern Ohio Chapter
The W.S. Tyler Property is a former industrial complex comprised of twenty-four (24) buildings, which total over a million square feet in building area. Its new life as "Tyler Village" is modeled as a modern village, offering opportunities for collaboration, amenities for tenants and non-traditional "offices" and studios to attract energized and creative businesses.
Tyler has become a "makers" village serving as home to furniture companies, a STEM charter school, design firms, laboratories, manufacturing facilities, homemade soda and beer breweries and other creative endeavors. The tenants are as eclectic as the architecture. Historic forms, punctuated by expansive spaces and large windows, are re-imagined as offices, studios, workshops and more.
Tyler Village's revitalization has brought new activities and economies to the St. Clair Neighborhood and serves as model in adaptive re-use of large urban manufacturing properties.

SPARKBASE SOFTWARE COMPANY
Leaking Boot Brewery
Parker Hannifin Corporation
As a manufacturing company in need of additional office space and new lab/testing facilities, the Parker Hannifin Corporation saw the potential in the conversion of a large, 150,000 s.f. factory building to a state-of-the-art facility. Working closely with the company, City Architecture was able to adaptively re-use a substantial portion of this factory space into new world headquarters office for the growing Hose Products Division and the Industrial Hose Division. In addition to office space, this project also involved the relocation of highly technical laboratories that the company utilizes for testing its specialized products.
A Parker retail store was incorporated on the building facing the main street, further activating the front facade and providing a showcase model and prototype for future retail stores. City Architecture’s high level of service, understanding of client needs and inspired designs for multiple facilities have led to an ongoing relationship with Parker Hannifin. We have partnered on four expansion plans together and pride ourselves of the strength of this long-standing professional and personal relationship.
Chmura Economics & Analytics Interior Renovation
The Chmura Economics and Analytics, in downtown Cleveland, underwent an interior renovation to align the aesthetic of their office with the forward thinking advanced nature of their work and clientele. The transformation included a new glass enclosed conference room fitted with advanced technological features, a re-imagining of the entrance lobby both functionally and visually, the addition of branding elements throughout the facility, and enhanced lighting and fire protection. The existing two-story spaces within the offices were enriched by inserting functional and colorful built features spanning multiple levels to increase the dramatic effect of an already interesting environment.
City Architecture provided design services for a 4,500-sf office build-out in the historic Brownell Hall Building. Located in the Gateway District in Cleveland, the historic building was originally built as a schoolhouse in 1883. The Listener Driven Radio (now known as Futuri Media) offices inspired a high tech aesthetic within the historic structure.
