This office building, a renovation to an owner-occupied building, engages the community with a dynamic street presence. Located on a busy thoroughfare, the design activates the exterior presence of the building with glazing to connect it with the neighborhood. Each office has a window that is shaped to direct views back to the street, strengthening the connection to the neighborhood from the perspective of the building inhabitants.
