Cohlmia Eye Center

“It’s an optometrist’s office, for goodness’ sake! Let’s give people something great to look at.”

Even on paper, it was a one-of-a-kind project. At its core was a round structure that grabbed attention and stood out in the crowd.

Farha has seen 40 years of beautiful designs. But this one? This was pure construction eye candy.

Project Details

  • Completed the 20,000-square-foot new construction.
  • Incorporated an expansive use of glass for an open feel.
  • Sunlit rooms and hallways emphasized the importance of seeing the world with bright vision.
  • The round structure created the special challenge of a complicated, intricate framing system that had to fit precisely — and it did.
  • Watching the Farha crew building the frame, one observer commented, “That’s so beautiful, it’s a shame they have to put a roof on it.”
