As Philadelphia’s first major office high-rise in more than 10 years, the Cira Centre adds an impressive contemporary element to the city’s historic architecture. Designed by famed architect Caesar Pelli, the 436', 28-story building is sheathed in glass, contrasting with the limestone exterior of the neighbouring 30th Street Station. The skyscraper offers a state-of-the-art office and conference centre, a modern restaurant/lounge, and a fitness centre.
dormakaba's contribution to the project
Specifiers turned to dormakaba Architectural Hardware’s family of products, which blend seamlessly with the modern glass exterior while providing the functionality needed for such a versatile, high traffic building. The entrance hardware selected had to be minimal, yet reliable and secure.
