Advocacy Center, Las Vegas, NV
Designed to fit on a small 0.65 acre site in downtown Las Vegas, the Advocacy Center was designed to house offices of several prominent Las Vegas law firms. The project includes 47,000 SF of office space, a third-level exterior event terrace with great city views, and an underground parking structure for 100+ vehicles.
The architectural style reflects our client’s desire to create a historic American building appearance. The elevated building entrance with a prominent grand stair and entry level plaza provide the visitor with an experience similar to entering a historic municipal structure. Building elevations are clad with clay brick and pre-cast fiber reinforced concrete forms.
The interior design followed the clients request for the French renaissance style which includes numerous decorative elements and finishes throughout the public and private spaces. Highly ornate ceilings and suspended crystal chandeliers are not common in today’s modern business environments. These items bring to mind the building’s prominence and the importance of law.
The top office levels are connected with an open staircase that links the resources of several firms. The interior spaces also include multiple conference rooms, a full size mock-courtroom for pre-trial practice and academic community use, and an exercise room for employees. An underground parking structure is conveniently accessible through the main lobby and building elevators.
Energy efficiency and user comfort was a prime consideration in the design of this building. The design team incorporated numerous modern technological features, such as exterior window shading, solar water heating, electric car charging, etc. all well hidden within the historic building style.
