Spectrum Design Corporate HeadquartersRoanoke, Virginia
Spectrum Design purchased the 1900 Roanoke Carriage Company building for its new headquarters office in downtown Roanoke. The 4-story, 20,000 s.f. historical building has a unique footprint in that it is 25 feet wide by 200 feet long. The length of the building parallels a Roanoke City park called Century Square. The City of Roanoke allowed Spectrum to integrate new windows and entry access from the park. The renovation is an upscale design that respects the existing building while providing an open and flexible office environment for the firm's staff. Historical tax credits were an important consideration in the purchase and redesign of the building.
