Lubert-Adler at Cira Centre
Offices in the Sky
Philadelphia, PA

Project Type

Lubert-Adler Real Estate Funds, a real estate private equity firm based in Philadelphia, chose Hillier Architecture to design their new headquarters on the 16th, 27th, 28th and 29th floors of the signature Cira Centre Building.

Deep Penetrating Light


To maximize the filtration of natural light deep into the space, perimeter offices have been outfitted with clear glass office fronts and and interior workstations have been faced with low wood and glass surrounds. Reception areas are defined by walls of large granite slabs and rhythmically proportioned white lacquered panelling. Clean, elegant lines and a youthful interpretation of classic design motifs form the basic design vocabulary throughout the project. Two interconnecting stairs at opposite ends of the upper three floors provide a seamless connection between the different functional departments and provide spectacular views of the Philadelphia skyline.

Flexible Floor Plan


Ceiling heights range from 10 feet to 50 feet and a mezzanine was added in one of the executive offices. Highly flexible, the conference rooms and lounge can act independently for daily meetings or can simultaneously entertain guests for large events while overlooking the Philadelphia skyline.
