Rotary International

CLIENT: Rotary
LOCATION: Evanston, IL

Before this renovation, Rotary International’s executive floor was suffering from an identity crisis. Unchanged since the early 1970s, and the style of the original building owner, One Rotary Center’s premiere floor needed an update in style, function, and technology.

Now a space befitting this leading not-for-profit organization, the remodeled executive lobby serves as a welcoming gateway to visitors. Photography archives and artifacts express the organization’s rich history of humanitarian work, while beautiful maps and a striking flag display suggest their strong global presence.

Sophisticated tones and rich woods create an atmosphere of drama and distinction and blend with the prevailing aesthetic of the building. While a certain number of private offices remained necessary, the number was kept to a minimum to maximize natural day-light and shared views.
