    The Cleveland Browns’ $5 million, four-month renovation project vastly improves its Training and Administrative Complex in Berea, Ohio. The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

Designed by Seattle-based Graham Baba Architects, the new Washington Fruit & Produce Co.  headquarters in Yakima, WA, is surrounded by one of the world’s most high-tech fruit packing warehouses. Tucked between two large berms, the luscious courtyard and view of hills beyond, provides a perfect backdrop for the wide-open workspaces and large glazed-window private offices.

Inspired by a mid-20th century barn, the concept of a repetitive utilitarian shell is complimented by the simple interiors, featuring ample natural light and a warm palette. A raised floor system for the utilities and wiring plays a key role in the building’s concept and aesthetics. The agricultural roots in the company and location give meaning to the design concept. washington-fruit-produce-hq-matt-anderson-graham-baba-architects-washington-office-vernacular_dezeen_2364_col_33

Tucked behind land forms and site walls, this courtyard-focused office complex provides a refuge from the noise and activity of the industrial processing yards nearby, according to Graham Baba Architects.
