Lifeline OF OHIO Renovation and Addition
Columbus, OH
<< Back to Project List

RKA reorganized the site, created a new Donor Memorial and building addition and designed the renovations to Lifeline of Ohio’s existing building in order to convey Lifeline of Ohio’s mission (organ and tissue donation) to visitors, volunteers and staff. The new Donor Memorial commemorates those donors who have shared the “Gift of Life” and provides a dignified place where connections between donors’ families and recipients’ families are made and remembered. Recognizing the “ripple effect” of how one Gift of Life helps many, ripples emanate from a central fountain and reach out through the Donor Memorial and into the lobby and new conference center.

The new addition includes three combinable conference spaces that will accommodate a variety of volunteer training sessions, staff meetings, receptions and events. The conference center lobby offers views into the Donor Memorial through a curved glass curtainwall.
