Cleva North America
The goals for a new 10,000 SF office building for Cleva North America included providing a contemporary and distinctive design while tying the building into the traditional fabric of the existing office park. McMillan Pazdan Smith’s design provides Cleva, a cleaning products company, with a modern look, but uses brick detailing such as corbelling and Flemish bond brick coursing for a traditional feel. Large, modern glass windows and steel accents with a rear balcony bring balance and interest to the building. The façades are detailed with smooth, over-sized brick to accent the large windows and entry. By combining these ideas, the building carries both a clean, progressive look with a reference to the traditional architecture of surrounding buildings. The interior layout is an open floor plan with ample daylight from the large windows and balcony. A large stair accents the lobby area as well as the second-floor showroom.
