Located in the historic Strietmann building in Over-the-Rhine, the Merkle B2B (formerly Gyro) office promotes creativity and transparency, with features such as glass conference rooms and an open workstation area appropriately spaced to support collaboration. Additionally, materials from previous offices were creatively recycled to achieve both cost savings and a nod to the firm’s rich heritage.
