DUBAI MARINA Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates Service: Master Development Plan, Master Planning, Landscape Architecture, Planning, Site Design,

Six residential high-rise towers and 64 villas have been successfully completed in the first phase of the Dubai Marina resort and recreation community in Dubai, UAE. It is the first western resort-style environment of its kind in the Middle East. This is a US project which will be sequentially phased over the next seven to ten year period. The development programme includes 1,100 units of mid-range to luxury housing in unit types varying from one to five bedrooms. The intent of the development team is to create a benchmark, for resort living in the emerging tourism market of the Middle East Gulf States region. Each of the six towers have a different but complementary landmark feature on the desert skyline, serving as a gateway to the development. The condominium buildings are connected by means of a continuous pedestrian water’s edge promenade. The villas, the most valuable of the residential units on the site, front the water’s edge and encircle the site, hiding residential and retail site parking in the interior of the base podium. This provides a human, accessible scale to the development at the ground level. A town centre development with 5,600 square metre retail development,

shops and plazas, cafes and restaurants, and 1,860 square metres of amenity space and recreation facilities enhances the character of the district. The residential is designed to integrate on a quality level with existing and proposed five star hotels along the Jumeira Beach edge of the Gulf. The individual six towers are oriented to enhance exposure to the spectacular site, which provides golf course, grand canal and sea views. Balconies within the units are large outdoor rooms that are shaded and positioned for optimal views. Interior layouts have a “great room” concept, which is a large combined living and dining room with a separate bedroom wing and family area provided according to local custom. Separate secondary access to the larger four and five bedroom units facilitates servant access and servicing of the suites. Variety in types and configurations of units, plan flexibility and finish options for condominium owners were key aspects of the residential design. Privacy issues were carefully considered in respect of local customs.


WEST INDIA QUAY TOWER Location: Canary Wharf, UK Service: Architectural Design, Interior Design, Master Planning

In late January of 2000, HOK International won a qualification competition for a Marriott hotel and serviced apartment tower at West India Quay, adjacent to the Canary Wharf Estate in London's Docklands. The hotel features 47 executive apartments and extensive business and relaxation facilities. The site had previously been granted permission for hotel and residential use with a maximum planning/ massing envelope of 36 stories. HOK completed the schematic design stage and provided full services through to completion. With a tight urban site, dual use cores, ground conditions and a

Size: 654,000 sf Status: Completed in 2004

challenging net to gross occupancy the project presented many opportunities. HOK International responded with an eloquent 36-story faceted faรงade facing our neighbors, to the South Canary Wharf and a Terra Cotta plinth to the north, to marry into the old warehouse. The use of shading on the faรงade significantly enhanced environmental performance with one level of service and one level of parking below ground. Shear walls are nearly eliminated by the strategic placement of stairs and cores.

JW MARRIOTT INDIANAPOLIS Location: Indianapolis, Indiana Service: Architecture, Planning

The JW Marriott Indianapolis Downtown – the largest JW Marriott in the world – is a new five-star, 34-story hotel that houses 1,005 guest rooms and was constructed to serve the recently expanded Indiana Convention Center, the new Lucas Oil Stadium, numerous nearby museums and the entire downtown Indianapolis area. HOK’s design for the new hotel pays homage to its setting through site orientation, massing and materials. Located at the southern edge of downtown, the hotel is characterized by a 30-story tower clad in a blue, jewel-like glass rising above a 4-story podium to create a modern new landmark that defines the City of Indianapolis. Despite its size, design of this new structure is sensitive to the pedestrian scale. It draws, contextually, upon its proximity to the old downtown area through its use of multi-colored masonry and Indiana limestone at the base.

Size: 1,000,000 sf Status: Completed in 2010

Design of the tower strikes a delicate balance between the hotel’s proximity to natural resources, such as the White River, and its uniquely urban setting. The tower features a wave-like curve with a glimmering, waterlike façade that changes as frequently as the surface of the river by reflecting the movement of the sun, clouds and city’s skyline, in its mirrored surface. A pedestrian skybridge provides a direct connection to the Indiana Convention Center and a stunning tension-trussed entry canopy further enhances the guest’s experience. The new hotel is part of HOK’s master plan for five convention hotels on this site. In addition to the 1,005 guest rooms, the new hotel houses 54 meeting rooms, 104,000 square feet of event space and a 40,500-square-foot Grand Ballroom (the largest hotel ballroom in the Midwest). Retail and restaurant spaces along the street level are also included.

DOHA CITY CENTRE HOTELS Location: Doha, Qatar Service: Master Plan, Architecture, Interior Design

The Doha City Centre is at the heart of one of the fastest developing regions in the world. The five-tower development was designed to integrate into the existing structure.

The identical towers stand at attention, acting as a gateway to the modern age of the city centre and creating a significant impact on the city’s skyline.

Size: 2,000,000 sf Status: Completed in 2006

Connected to the Doha City Centre is the Marriott Renaissance, Courtyard by Marriott and Marriott Executive Apartments. HOK’s design team aimed for a look that is elegant and contemporary. Features include state-of-the-art meeting facilities, an outdoor pool, Vitality Health Club, Saray Spa, and an array of upscale restaurants and bars offering international cuisine and breathtaking vistas of the Doha skyline and the Arabian Gulf.

HILTON COLUMBUS CONVENTION CENTER HOTEL Location: Columbus, Ohio Service: Architecture, Planning

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority (FCCFA) selected HOK to serve as design architect for a the convention hotel in downtown Columbus. Simeone Deary Design Group was the interior designer and Moody Nolan served as the interior architect of record. The new hotel is as a full-service Hilton and is expected to increase revenues for the City of Columbus. Located within the historic Arena District and adjacent to the Art, Market and Business Districts, the exterior design of the 13-story hotel responds to three primary scales: the district scale, recalling the nearby vintage three-, four- and five-story buildings; the pedestrian scale, to reflect the ‘walkable’ nature of the neighborhood; and the City scale, to respond to the high-rise, glass, stone and steel-clad buildings a few blocks away. A mixed façade of glass and masonry in a stepped and set-back pattern allows the building to visually relate to the height and massing of the surrounding buildings.

Size: 500,000 sf Status: Completed in 2012

An eye-catching “flying-carpet” awning at the main entrance on High Street serves as a beacon to hotel guests while also addressing the challenge of designing an entrance facade on a street that has a grade increase of more than six feet across a 240-foot-long site. On the interior, the building was planned to maximize efficiencies. A ring-shaped guest tower sits atop a rectangular three-story podium that accommodates a ballroom, lobby functions and meeting space. A 400-seat restaurant and bar are located on the third story – or “roof” – of the podium, which is also the base level of a soaring, 10-story interior atrium that is framed by the guestroom wings and capped with a sloping glass ceiling, allowing natural light to flood the space. A pedestrian bridge and expanded parking garage are also part of the project. LEED Gold pending, the project targets 32% reduced energy usage, 30% water reduction and 7,870 less metric tons of CO2 per year, and features high-efficiency boilers, building automation systems, controls, low-flow fixtures, and extensive recycled materials.


US BANK TOWER Location: Sacramento, California Service: Architectural Design, Interior Design

The design for the 25 story US Bank Tower at 621 Capitol Mall is based on three primary intentions: to establish a building that celebrates Sacramento’s skyline with grace, dignity and elegance; to create a relationship with Sacramento’s downtown pedestrian street life; and to represent a clear and distinctive architectural vision that integrates energy efficiency and sustainability. Together, these foundational elements combine to create a building that possesses a unique sense of place and community and that offers a compelling addition to Sacramento’s urban skyline. At street level, a “linear park” connects the Capitol Mall with L Street. Pedestrians walking along the park can see the Mall’s entire length and enjoy striking views of the Capitol Building. The park is enhanced by landscaping and retail destinations: design aspects that define scale, sustain pedestrian activity in the area, and a sense of community with a coffee shop, restaurant, cafes, and banking facilities.

Size: 680,000 sf Status: Completed in 2008

The building’s expansive seven-story lobby creates a unique sense of place through its visual relationship with the nearby State Capitol, its navigability, and the sitespecific sculptural installations it features. The lobby allows visitors a comprehensible and easily intuited design for those finding their way within the building and includes integrated art realized in cooperation with the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission’s Art in Public Places. The design is an unmistakable expression of elegant simplicity. Unlike many of the older buildings on Capitol Mall, US Bank Tower at 621 Capitol Mall’s exterior is transparent, light, and open and communicates the activities within by allowing a glimpse inside. In addition to the building’s openness, the design emphasizes sustainability and energy efficiency, sophisticated technology, and accessible communication networks.

Sysco is LEED NC Gold Certified.

WELLMARK Location: Des Moines, Iowa Service: Master Planning, Architectural Design, Planning/ Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture Size: 500,000 sf Wellmark selected HOK to assist with the consolidation of its headquarters and operations center from multiple locations to a single urban facility accommodating 2,000 employees in Des Moines, Iowa. Organizational efficiency and effectiveness were key drivers for the project. The architectural design features an elliptical entry garden and visitor drop-off area that is carved deep into the building facade to allow deep penetration of daylight in the core of the building. The building is also set back from the urban edge to accommodate green space on every side, including along the adjacent parking structure.

Status: Complete in 2010 Award: Engineering News Record’s 2011 Best Office Project and Region’s Best Project in the Midwest’s Annual Best Project Competition In addition to architectural design, HOK provided programming, strategic facility planning, workplace analysis and interior design services for this headquarters project.

5 CHURCHILL PLACE Location: Canary Wharf, London Service: Landscape Architecture, Architecture

5 Churchill Place, Canary Wharf, is a 15-story office tower and public realm in London’s Docklands, located with convenient access to the major facilities of Canary Wharf, the Jubilee Line and the Docklands Light Railway Station. The building was built on an irregular shaped site, and completed within a very tight time schedule at the end of January 2009. This complex project was made more challenging by being situated over a pre-existing basement and a ramp structure which serves a neighboring building. A public plaza of approximately 2000m2 is located on a podium adjacent to the West India Quay. It sits between the existing Barclays Headquarters building and the 5 Churchill Place Building. This new public space is located on top of an existing slab, above the plant room of the 5 Churchill Place building.

Size: 33,000 sf Status: Completed in 2009

All planting areas had to be raised above the existing level and carefully waterproofed to avoid leakages. Light grey granite was used on all raised platforms to match the cladding stone of the adjacent building. The plaza consists of a series of raised platforms and terraces connecting a 1.6m height difference between two existing levels. These terraces are arranged to provide a sequence of gathering spaces with different atmospheres throughout the site. The site is partially shaded by the tall towers that enclose it on two sides and is also exposed to moderate winds. It is considering these characteristics that Amelanchier Lamarckii was chosen as the tree species for the project. This is a robust, shade tolerant tree which flowers in spring and has an spectacular red foliage in autumn, providing year round interest and structural planting of the site.

KONE CENTER TOWER Location: Moline, Illinois Service: Architectural Design, Structural Engineering

HOK designed a new build-to-suit corporate headquarters located on the east bank of the Mississippi River providing expansive views of the river and neighboring Davenport, Iowa. The 125,000-square-foot steel and glass building provides Class A office space with a gracious lobby at the base linking the public to the River. An attached structured garage provides parking for Kone, the corporate tenant. Financial District Properties, the developer, have aspirations for the building to be a top-tier, build-to-suit development using sustainable practices. Financial District capitalized on newly available state grants for sustainable measures as well as Tax Increment Financing funds from the City for the garage in order to offer well-priced spaces in the marketplace.

Size:125,000 sf Status: Completed in 2013

Working closely with KJWW Engineers, HOK explored numerous energy systems (geothermal, wind, solar) to arrive at a cost-effective system housed by a performance-based form to create a distinctive identity for this real estate development. The building envelope reinforces the basic massing and orientation strategy. Metal panels on the south create a thermal barrier that helps protect against temperature fluctuations. High-performance, specialty coated glass provides better insulation than conventional windows. HOK’s designers used Rhino for modeling software as well as Grasshopper to finely tune the building envelope on each side to optimize views, daylighting and heat gain controls with differently calibrated measures to bring balance to the interior air quality. KONE is LEED-NC Platinum Certified.





HOK’s mission is to deliver exceptional design ideas and solutions through the creative blending of human need, environmental stewardship, value creation, science and art.
