Plaza Centre One


Location: Iowa City, IA
Description: Update the entrance to 1970s office building to be appropriate for the office of the UI Vice President of Research and other tenants in the building. Project replaced a large dark heavy canopy that blocked daylight from the lobby with a smaller sleeker canopy that invited people and daylight into the lobby. An accessible vestibule was created to improve energy efficiency. The finishes in the lobby were kept simple because the lobby was intended as a gallery for UI graduate thesis sculptor and other art.
