A New Home for the Foundation

The Cleveland Foundation’s new home is a mass timber building design targeting LEED Gold. Located within Cleveland’s Hough/Midtown District, the site lies on an unimproved plot adjacent to the historic Dunham Tavern Museum. The Project Team, a collaboration between Vocon and S9 Architecture, designed a new headquarters building that is a new home for the Foundation and a tremendous resource to the surrounding community.

Design Excellence

With a focus on wellness for their employees, Vocon created an inviting, warm and humble architectural design to showcase who Great Lakes Cheese Company is at their core and highlight innovation.

Celebrating Identity Through Design
A Representation of Excellence

Manufacturing leader Swagelok partnered with Vocon to create a dynamic Global Headquarters that would become the physical embodiment of their brand, reputation, and customer commitment.

Through the efficient and effective deployment of real estate assets, technology, and department vicinity their Solon, OH campus became a thriving environment that enables connection – inspiring innovation, productivity, and problem-solving, while enhancing internal and external collaboration amongst Swagelok’s employees, customers, and suppliers.

Writing our New York story

Having outgrown our previous space, it was time for Vocon’s New York office to write its own story at 530 Fifth Avenue. With 15,000 SF, ingenuity, and an eye for cutting-edge design, our offices now accommodate over 80 employees within a flexible and responsive workplace. Our space tells the story of our relationships – our commitment to clients and employees, our ability to challenge the status quo, and our gratitude towards the community.

Designing for the Future

Westfield isn’t just an exemplar for safe, modern, flexible, pandemic-age designs. It’s a testament to the power of a truly egalitarian space for its fast-growing workforce. We helped the super-regional insurer envision a futuristic, flexible work environment emphasizing optionality, choice and technology while recalling the organization’s rich 175-year history.

Home for the Mobile Workforce

Home to the firm’s second-largest North American office, this confidential global professional services firm office needed a highly flexible space to manage differing workloads at different times of the year. The busy tax season is particularly demanding on their space, while during the remainder of the year they need to accommodate a typically off-site workforce.

Employee-First Design

C.H. Robinson came to us with a very specific request: make employees happy. We couldn’t have been happier to help.

Happy People, Happy Earth

Cleveland mainstay Oatey wanted a new corporate headquarters that was both sustainable and inspiring. We partnered with them on the design, and the result was a sustainable space that is one with its surroundings.

When Work Follows Design

Forest City Realty Trust, now Brookfield Properties, needed a new way of working. Their existing space didn’t serve their new goals and failed to live up to the vision their work promoted. We helped them change where they work, so they could change how they work.

The Toughest Client is Yourself

We hold our work to very high standards. So when it came time to redesign our own office, we had a lot to live up to.

How Less Became More

Through thoughtful strategy and a strong partnership, Vocon helped Jones Day to reduce their office footprint and simultaneously expand their presence.

A Century of Innovation

As one of America’s most storied brands, Goodyear’s new campus needed to highlight their past as well as the innovative spirit that is leading them to the future. We worked with them to create a space that celebrates their story and encourages greater collaboration.

Many Stories, One Space

Cleveland’s Global Center for Health Innovation helps show the world the biggest new developments in healthcare. Since their building is constantly featuring new companies and innovations, they asked us to help create a space that is consistent yet flexible enough to accommodate a range of occupants.

The Formula for Innovation

When OMNOVA Solutions
relocated to a new town and office space, they needed a new building that would
encourage collaboration and help attract top talent.

Flexible, Mobile, Local

As Vocon’s first significant project for this confidential global professional services firm, the Chicago office renovation set the pace for our future work together. The multiphase renovation encompassed nine floors and 335,000 SF, all designed for optimal functionality and flexibility.  

Next-gen tech meets old-school style

As one of Cleveland’s oldest law firms, Calfee has been serving the city for more than 100 years. When they needed a new office space, they asked us to help them create something that showcased their history while also highlighting their 21st-century capabilities.

The Power of Relationships

KeyBank’s approach is built on maintaining strong relationships with their clients, employees, and communities. When it was time to update their spaces, Vocon’s relationship-focused approach made us a natural partner.
