This building reflects the use of classical design elements—semicircular arch windows with surrounds containing key stones, Doric columns—in a contemporary situation. The extra-large ribbon window of the second floor and first floor set-back create a delightful main facade. Designed by The Architectural Group (TAG) of Grandville, Michigan, the building has 17,627 square feet on three levels. The building contains office and meetings space as well as a three-story atrium.
Terraced landscaping at the front of the building helps to incorporate the mass of the building into a slopping site. The lower floor extends from the main mass of the building and incorporates a separate roof structure offering the feeling of a pavilion. This pavilion has a dedicated outdoor space for events. Originally built for the Home and Building Association of Grand Rapids, the facility now houses classrooms and administrative spaces for Central Michigan University's off-campus programs.
