TTV Architects, Inc. was involved in the remodeling of 800 sf of existing office space which included the expansion of the existing corridor and installing new storefront window assemblies and finishes. This corridor expansion included the conversion of five small offices into additional open space. The existing window assemblies were long and narrow, not taking advantage of the natural lighting and landscape. Therefore, a few were removed and replaced with larger storefront assemblies.
To give the space a sense of warmth and a clear visual separation between the corridor and the workspace, the structural columns, bracing, and ceiling system were enhanced with a rich wood veneer. The spacing of the structural elements naturally created bays, allowing for different types of furniture to be utilized. The remodeling encourages different types of faculty and student fraternization, ranging from individual work, to different sizes of group collaboration.
The Pensacola Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Pensacola, FL, was plagued by water-intrusion issues for nearly 20 years. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) decided to evacuate the building, in order to complete a major renovation. GSA’s goals included improving the aesthetics of the building, says Christopher Noel, senior vice president of TTV Architects in Jacksonville, FL. “It had to present the image of a United States Courthouse-to have that sense of permanence about it,” says Noel.
TTV Architects, Inc. was selected by the U.S. General Services Administration to provide Architectural, Engineering, and a Interior Design Services for the renovation and addition for the U.S. District Federal Courthouse located in Pensacola, FL. The courthouse is 5 stories + mezzanine (approx. 33,000sf) and total project construction cost has base bid of approx $24 Million. Construction is scheduled to begin this month and conclude September 2019. Renovations will include both interior and exterior redesign, while addressing leaks and mold contamination.
TTV has completed designing the new Community First Credit Union Yulee Branch approx. $477,000 which will be located in the Villages of Amelia Center.
“We are upgrading the banking experience for our Nassau County members,” said John Hirabayashi, CEO and president of Community First. “This branch will offer an improved in-person experience along with the convenience of a location in a shopping center our members are visiting weekly and sometimes daily.”
Interior build-out and exterior improvements will start this month and the branch is expected to open in fall 2018. Auld & White Constructors is the general contractor and TTV Architects is the design firm.
The new location will be nearly 2,450 square feet and will feature the credit union’s modern design, technology, layout and décor. The move is part of the credit union’s Branch Transformation Project, the institution’s most aggressive and comprehensive branch and facilities upgrade and update in its history which aligns physical branch locations with modern banking needs and customer uses. The new branch features Community First’s signature lobby, relaxation zone and walk-up ATM in a convenient outparcel location of one of Yulee’s largest shopping centers.
The interior features a redesign for modern banking including an open floor plan, bright colors and advanced technologies. The branch experience includes full- and self-service and assisted service options. Specialized financial experts are instantly available through the credit union’s Expert Nearby solution.”

Always believing in the importance of our local community and art, our firm entered into the design competition for the new Jacksonville School of Art, which will be the first piece in establishing the new vibrant Phoenix Arts District. The goal of our project, that we named The Mosaic Corridor or MOCO for short, will not only attract students and artists, but the community at large, sparking the evolution of the Phoenix Art District, and putting our city in the same conversation as Miami’s Wynwood Walls District or Atlanta’s Ponce City Market.
TTV is happy to announce that our team won the grand prize!!! Congrats to all the rest of the finalists and everyone involved. Look back here every couple days as we upload different renderings of the project.
