Smith & Ghent Commerce Center - Fairlawn, OH

This project was to design two user-specific buildings on a site at the prominent intersection of Smith and Ghent Roads. The phase-one building shown was designed to take advantage of a sloping topography. Entry points were created; one off of the sidewalk arcade in the front and a second from a second story parking zone in the rear. The points of entry were combined into one grand space through the creation of a two-story atrium. Clerestory windows were designed into the space to take advantage of diffused northern light.
