Cleveland, OH

In spring 2015, PIRHL, a full-service developer, general contractor and owner of single-family and multi-family housing, engaged the interior design studio of longtime partner RDL Architects to reinvent the identity of their soon-to-be headquarters. Located in Cleveland’s historic warehouse district, the fourth floor renovation began by gutting more than 9,000 square feet of existing office space to allow for a more modern aesthetic.

The interior designer’s vision was an enormous change for PIRHL, considering its previous environment. The interior design places an emphasis on contrast and space, featuring 13’ ceilings, exposed brick, warm white walls and glossy black trim to highlight the nine foot windows. Bright bursts of color, including its PIRHL’s signature green, mixed with an abundance of glass and low panel Herman Miller work stations allow natural light to pass through, creating a warm and balanced environment, which PIRHL now calls home.
