A True Reflection Of Corporate Vision
Columbia Sussex was experiencing explosive growth in both the hotel and casino portions of their business. They were in desperate need of a new headquarters to accommodate their business expansion. In addition to the traditional architectural constraints of time and money, the owners wanted their new headquarters to have a bold, iconic look to better represent their brand.
To achieve their distinctive vision, FRCH designed a striking, eight floor, 96,000 sf, ultramodern headquarters. Located on a prominent 50 acre hillside site, Columbia Sussex stands proud, as a visual beacon from the major interstate below. Its grand, articulated roof captivates the eye, while the inside boasts an elaborate curtain wall with dramatic lighting and a spectacular rooftop conference facility. The interior design choices are bold, smart and responsible. Smaller windows facing south and larger windows to the north maximize energy efficiency, while still allowing for light to shine into the open office space. Their corporate environment is now warm and inviting, much like you would expect from a prominent hotel company.
