Columbia Plaza - Lobby Renovation

01 Challenge

As one of the larger, more prominent buildings in downtown Cincinnati’s business district, Columbia Plaza needed a well-deserved facelift beginning with its main lobby. BHDP's mission was to transform the 3,900 SF lobby space so it would make a stronger, more positive first impression of the entire building with additional common space, entrance points, and natural light. 

02 Solution

BHDP’s new lobby design expanded the original space beyond the exterior façade of the building and added significantly taller windows that stretch to the second floor, so more light can filter into the lobby’s interior spaces. This dramatic design provides additional space to accommodate new soft seating and doors while including a few vestibule entries to encourage an increase in foot traffic. The interior of the lobby features more modern and linear lines, and light-colored finishes, along with additional upgrades.
