How do you turn a five-story former medical office building into a thriving modern workspace? We partnered with Equity Trust to convert a staid space into a high-performance work of art.
Family run since its founding in 1974, Equity Trust offers self-directed IRAs and 401(k) plans, with more than $25 billion in assets under management. Having outgrown its existing space, Equity Trust opted to relocate to a five-story Westlake, Ohio building that had previously served as a medical office building, and they reached out to us for a complete remodel, including site, exterior façade, interior, and main entry.
The goal of the new headquarters was to promote collaboration, connect its 400+ employees, and improve work efficiency. We transformed the five-story building from façade to finish, improving security, adding cafés and a patio, amping up the technology and A/V systems in training and meeting areas, adding wellness spaces and healthy food options, and opening up more areas to natural light.
