9400 Dodge Building Renovation

This building, built in the late 1980's on what was once the western edge of the city, had lost its luster in recent years. During this same time, Omaha's metropolitan was migrating westward. As a result, the 9400 Dodge building — once at the western edge — now occupied a nearly dead-center location in the city. The design team was tasked with modernizing the building, including the central atrium and main entries, so that a significant internet retailer would consider occupying nearly 70% of the building space. Investigations into non-traditional interior finish materials led the design team to emphasize the main circulation axis.

  • Planes of ipe decking are highlighted by linear fixtures in a dynamic running pattern that’s integrated into the planking patterns of the wood soffits.
  • To further complement the design, the tinted glass in the atrium curtain wall was replaced with clear vision panels and white spandrel units, while a nip and tuck was performed on the chamfered fur outs on the elevator cores and elevated walkways of this 80's classic.
  • Solid partition rails on the walkway were replaced with transparent glass for a simple yet elegant public circulation space.

The building renovation improved lighting and visibility and created a modern work place environment that is experiencing near 100% building occupancy.
