BOSTON (July 23, 2018)—The recent expansion of Dyer Brown to new offices in Atlanta is paying dividends for the award-winning architecture and interiors firm, with a national roster of active and completed projects expanding rapidly.

Focusing on the southeastern United States, Dyer Brown’s Atlanta team has made deep inroads with new workplace, healthcare and higher-education building projects. In addition to its Boston headquarters staff, Atlanta-based project managers Maggie Mitchell, IIDA, LEED GA, and Molly California, along with interior designer John Ballentine, have announced these new commissions and completions:

Renew Financial HQ

For the homeowner-focused renewable energy financing company, Dyer Brown has completed an impactful, brand-oriented open office with robust amenities for employees. The 27,000-square-foot project, occupying a full-floor of an Alpharetta, Ga., office building, serves as both call center and Southeast headquarters. Dyer Brown also established design standards for all current and future Renew Financial workplaces, optimizing team retention and operational efficiency for the financial group’s locations across the country.

Emory University Redesigns

Dyer Brown architects and designers are working with to help reorganize multiple departments across three administration buildings at this prestigious university. Working with the school’s Campus Services team to address interior aesthetics and utilization, acoustical concerns, natural light, and mechanical challenges, Dyer Brown’s redesign of 12,000 square feet of Emory facilities are expected to maximize collaborative areas, improve wayfinding to better direct visitors, and support employee productivity and enjoyment by providing a sense of place and greater belonging.

Skyland Trail (Adolescent Treatment Campus)

For this nationally recognized nonprofit organization providing mental health treatment, Dyer Brown is working in partnership with Smith Dalia Architects to provide interior design services for two buildings on a new adolescent campus in the Atlanta area. The team is renovating 30,000 square feet inside an existing building to accommodate conferencing, clinical staff areas, dining facilities, art, music, fitness, and therapy spaces. A new two-story residential building nearby will feature individual living units, shared communal spaces, and lounges. Dyer Brown is also working closely with Skyland Trail to upgrade facilities on their other campuses.

Cross-trained in multiple markets including workplace, hospitality, corporate services, and higher education—along with specialized services under their Corporate Services and Asset Design + Support divisions, Dyer Brown’s 50-plus team members continue the firm’s nearly 50-year tradition of innovative experiential design, now available in 50 states.
