WHE New Headquarters
Client: Wood Herron & Evans LLP
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
  • A 22,000sf office intentionally designed for functionality.
  • A transitional style that features updated finishes and furniture.
  • Community spaces including an upfront reception area, a kitchen area and a patio for entertain guests and hosting happy hours.
  • Legacy pieces, such as furniture built by the original owner, are incorporated throughout to celebrate the firm's long history.
Interesting Fact: In its previous location, the firm had a small footprint and was spread across multiple floors. Incorporating community spaces in the new office was a priority for Wood Herron & Evans to encourage firm-wide gathering and establish a more unified culture.

Wood Herron & Evans, an intellectual property law firm that has been around for more than 150 years, moved into a new headquarters after 90 years at the iconic Carew Tower in downtown Cincinnati. Seeking a refreshed space that better reflects current needs, workflow and technological capabilities, the firm partnered with SHP to re-envision its new workplace. The resulting design features a transitional aesthetic and introduces shared community spaces for the firm.

SHP delivered! We are so impressed with the creativity SHP brought to our project, and SHP’s flexibility in understanding the various competing interests and concerns that we wanted to address in our new space. Our new space suits us very well and allows us to grow into the future.
