A six-story bikeable building serving as a community hub for work and play. Amenities include co-working offices, bookable conference rooms, demo kitchen, training rooms, event spaces, community lounge, café, and a bike lounge. Our team collaborated with the architects, MEP, core + shell AORs, design managers, owners/developers, and contractors to make finish selections, millwork design and layout, coordinate the furniture and equipment selections, while also performing 3D modeling, and providing both construction documents and construction administration services.
Boch Auto Salon
Designed and built to house an extensive exotic car collection, this 17,000 square foot facility includes a car detail bay, open gallery, modern kitchen, bar, and private suite. The building can be thought of as two structures. The A-frame area has a full basement, concrete floor slab on deck, Douglas fir glulam trusses and structurally insulated roof panels. The main gallery is slab on grade with a steel joist and metal deck insulated roof.
Part of a much larger office space that is still under construction, the Ledger Showroom project was unique in that it has provided our team with a place to test out designs, textiles, furnishings, and other functionalities that will one day be used in the larger Ledger Building. This space is made even more unique because of its intended use as a bikeable, high-density coworking space, so our team had to be very creative and incorporate wall hooks for accessible, yet aesthetically pleasing bike storage, allowing people to bike to and from work. Our team even worked to incorporate elements like phone booths in the showroom for a sense of privacy within the open plan coworking space. By test fitting furnishings and design elements while the space is being used allows our team to make real-time changes and further informs the overall design of the larger building, slated to open in mid-2022.
University of Arkansas Brough Commons
Renovation to ground floor retail spaces in a two-story dining hall built in 1958 with low ceiling structure. HFA remodeled the existing tenant spaces, designed a 1,600 SF addition to create more seating and provide more access to daylight and views. Our team collaborated with multiple occupant groups including Chartwell's, Slim Chickens, Facilities Management, and Student Affairs to provide Interior Design services. We also worked with our landscape architects to provide cohesive design and connectedness from indoor to outdoor areas. Services also included programming, student focus group interviews, space planning, design development package for budgeting purposes, lighting and finish selections, custom millwork and furniture design, and specified/coordinated interior and site furniture packages.
University of Arkansas Global Campus
HFA led the interior renovation for the U of A Global Campus located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The 20,000 square foot office space houses multiple occupant groups on a multi-floor renovation and also includes advanced technology, audio and visual production studios, and converted an existing Proscenium theater to a black-box theater. Our team worked with various university department heads to develop a consensus in design solutions for each department, and we developed a cohesive master plan for long-term design standards for the campus. We also conducted a feasibility study for an upcoming addition to the building’s sixth floor and rooftop.
Pea Ridge High School
Our team worked closely with members of the school’s administration and staff to achieve the desired goal of a unique, professional environment for students and facility alike. The finished space (which comprises 95,258 square feet) includes classrooms, open seating and study areas, a dining area with a culinary center, a community clinic, a media center, an industrial tech lab and an agricultural lab, theatre entry and a gymnasium.
HFA proudly partnered with Ability Tree, a multi-state ministry to children with disabilities and their parents, providing recreation, education, support, and training.

The space includes a half-court gym with a retractable stage and seating for plays and training, a sensory gym, a multi-sensory environment room, soft-play equipment, trampolines, balance beams, a Lego room, an accessible tree house, a calming room, a craft room, and a covered outdoor play area in addition to administrative offices. From the 3D tree present in the foyer to the fully accessible outdoor play spaces, the design of the facility is intended to appeal to the senses of everyone who enters the facility, with or without special needs.
HFA Franklin Office
HFA is an architecture and engineering firm with offices in Bentonville, AR, Franklin, MA, Fort Worth, TX, and Mexico City. ECS was selected to work on the office remodel. The project is located in a historic felt manufacturing building, which gave us the opportunity to expose the existing structure. The space includes a reception area, custom open office workstations, private offices, break room, conference and huddle rooms, and a resource library.
Daniel O'Connells Sons
The client was looking for an office space that encouraged collaboration and social interaction for its Eastern Massachusetts team. We designed a modern, industrial office environment that takes advantage of existing features while adding new, interesting treatments throughout. That included: 8 private offices, 10 open workstations, one larger conference room and one smaller huddle room, touchdown spaces for field employees, an open, inviting break room and seating area and multiple informal stand-up gathering spaces to encourage collaboration.
After a fire destroyed the original Lakeview Pavilion, HFA collaborated with the construction manager to fast track the facility’s reconstruction. The new Lakeview Pavilion is a striking wedding and multi-function venue which improved on the original’s past success. With a capacity of approximately 500 guests, the building features cathedral ceilings, ample space for dancing, natural light, floor-to-ceiling windows, and picturesque water views. Two ballrooms provide separate entrances and private decks overlooking the lake allowing the facility to host multiple functions simultaneously.
