Vehr Communications
Office Expansion
Cincinnati, OH

Founded in 2007, Vehr Communications is a strategic communications consulting company providing PR, social media, marketing communications and related services for clients throughout North America. When office space adjacent to their existing location became available, the successful and growing firm capitalized on the opportunity, engaging Hixson to design their office expansion.

Hixson had previously re-designed the Vehr space in 2010. For the new project, the team's challenge was to blend the two spaces together, while enlarging and enhancing common areas and incorporating the Vehr brand and culture. Following an open plan concept, the Hixson team created plans to accommodate new and future Vehr associates. Three new conference rooms were designed to provide plenty of room for team members to collaborate on projects and meet with clients and visitors. An enlarged training room provides space for groups to meet and explore new concepts and ideas, and now includes direct access to the kitchen, which had not been possible in the original space. In addition, the renovated kitchen was enlarged to serve as an informal gathering place for co-workers. The main entry was re-located to a space directly off the elevator, and features a glass storefront to allow light from the exterior windows to flow into lobby areas.
