CMTA Inc. Office Renovation

The goal for CMTA’s Lexington office renovation was to create a dynamic and inclusive work environment for their 77 employees. The new location would see majority of the staff occupying the sixth floor while the rest of the staff occupied the fifth floor. Integration and collaboration between the two floors were paramount in the design brief.

The existing site presented the challenges of a large commercial space and deep internal pockets with curved glass exterior walls. Initially, it provided no access to external views or natural light. Our design solution was to place executive offices along the curved sides of the building. Glass walls at these offices allow for the natural daylight to filter into the internal core of the space lighting the open office workstations.

The fifth floor features a large conference room that serves as the company’s main meeting space for staff meetings. The sixth floor features a game room equipped with an e-sports lounge and pingpong table. Splitting the amenities between each floor allows for cross-pollination of staff.

Design details include bright white walls, natural, clear-stained oak wood tones, and pops of green, orange, and blue colors that reflect the company’s brand identity. The design intent moves towards a modern office design approach, with clean lines and subtle curves.

American Life Building Private Offices Renovations

It is crucial that when renovating a Mies van der Rohe building that the original design intention is respected. Therefore, EOP was careful to ensure that each of the renovated spaces reflects van der Rohe’s use of rectilinear forms, elegance, and simplicity. Furthermore, each space maximizes the use of natural daylighting and views to the river. Citing the pillar of Modernism in architecture, both tenant spaces have a richness and maturity that taps into the traditionalism of the architecture and the office tenants while also exuding an airiness and positivity that carries the spaces into the 21st century with ease.

AppHarvest Offices & Test Kitchen Headquarters and Marketing Suite

AppHarvest strives to create a difference through innovative farming techniques and a fun, fresh approach to health.

Because of these values, it was important to incorporate an energetic and simple approach to create a fun open-office atmosphere. By peeling back the interiors to reveal decades-old brick and concrete and incorporating large, open windows to admit plentiful daylight, the offices feel approachable and open to employees and visitors alike. Natural materials like plywood and neutral colors allow for the greenery and colors of the produce to act as accents and bring an organic life into the space.

EOP Architects Lexington Office Renovation

EOP Architects has been headquartered in downtown Lexington since 1981, which was the last time the space had a major renovation. The firm knew it was critical to update its space.

The firm’s designers opened up walls allowing natural light to flood the collaborative studio; added new and expanded meeting spaces with the latest technology and writable and pinup walls; and stripped century-old concrete columns and beams raw lending an urban edge. Realizing the impact of advancing technology, designers included a virtual reality studio so clients can “walk” through their spaces.

Administrative Headquarters

Kentucky Community & Technical College System

After determining a need for additional space for its administrative offices, KCTCS decided to use the abandoned 130,000 square foot Texas Instruments building.

This adaptive reuse provided the challenge of transforming a manufacturing plant into a stimulating, functional work environment for the KCTCS administrative staff. The initial phase, requiring the renovation of 87,300 square feet, introduces volumes of natural light into the facility, an open office landscape environment, as well as the incorporation of efficient technology such as under floor access systems.

The 25,200 square foot Phase 2 involved open office expansion and conference center development. The remainder of the building has been reserved for expansion of office areas, or the future development of educational program areas.

In 2019, EOP was asked to design a complete renovation of the space.
