2020 AIA Indiana Design Awards
Clif Bar was recognized with an award for Interior Architecture. The jury said, “This project makes all the right moves. The spaces are warm and active and the focus on wellness and use of biophilic design unmistakably connect the users to the brand.”

2020 Indy Chamber Monumental Awards
CSO took home top honors in the Interior Design category for Clif Bar. Indy Chamber’s Monumental Awards celebrate the built environment in the Indianapolis region and recognize the businesses and individuals who make quality of place possible.

2020 AIA Indiana 25 Year Award
Circle Centre Mall was recognized with the H. Roll McLaughlin 25 Year Award, which recognizes architecture built over twenty-five years ago that adds value to the community and has retained the original design intent. The jury commented that “this multi-block project integrated the preservation of numerous historic buildings and facades to maintain the unique character of downtown Indianapolis while providing a vibrant multi-block mixed use development. Twenty-five years after its completion, it continues to be a case study of working with local preservation agencies to create a vision that supports local preservation efforts and revitalizes urban centers through new development.” CSO and Browning Day teamed on the original project and accepted the award jointly.
