The lobby of an office building has a particularly important role. The main entry space sets a tone for the brands and culture of the companies housed in the building as well as providing a place for their people to connect, to caffeinate and to decompress.

At the Scripps Center, a recent refresh was designed to open and lighten the places people walk while creating a few intimate areas for gathering. It showcases important, inspiring artwork and adds an air of authenticity and freshness. The lobby today is your beloved, familiar friend with a great new look. Employing a range of new spatial metaphors, the Scripps Center redesign provides its residents a place to pause as well as offering opportunities for serendipitous connections.

Consisting of roughly 12,000 SF, the lobby was upgraded with new paint, furniture, security desk, and an office for the building’s concierge service. New lighting was also installed, some of which is programmed to change colors to celebrate events like a Bengals game or Reds Opening Day. The lobby renovation was included in $4-5 million worth of overall upgrades the Mayerson Family are making to the Scripps Center to maintain its status as one of the premier class A office towers in downtown Cincinnati.
