Working with Hallmark Cards, Inc. and Crown Center Redevelopment Corporation, a long-time repeat client, CP&A provided planning, design and construction services to successfully remodel over 45,000 SF of 5th floor space for the Human Resources (HR) Department.  Removing HR from the 4th floor was Phase One of a larger corporate remodel project, and would provide HR with a more convenient location for Hallmark employees.


From past experience, CP&A was familiar with Hallmark's corporate design standards and planning principles for the Hallmark campus.  CP&A applied these standards to organize open office "neighborhoods" connected by wide circulation "streets" with adjacent "core" rooms for planning, teaming and collaboration.


Color, lighting and floor materials were important design elements.  Accent colors on walls and columns gave individual identity to each office "neighborhood".  Cork flooring was the typical "street" floor finish, which along with a lower illumination level, served as the signature way-finding element throughout the office floors.
