The Oberlin

The Oberlin is a progressive office campus that connects the indoors to the outdoors. The 62,400 SF office complex is comprised of three buildings and features roll-up doors that open to outdoor patios. Unique spaces were created where people can hold meetings, have lunch or just take a break from work. At the onset, the site was primarily a parking lot yet the owner wanted the individual suites of the building to have their own outdoor amenity, and include a common space for the property. This was addressed by creating outdoor rooms with plant material that divided the space with greenery and hedge walls, creating individual personalities for each space.
