Allis Information Management

Allis Information Management (“AIM”) provides strategic intelligence services to large companies and government agencies. The building they now enjoy was designed by Dow Howell Gilmore Associates. DHGA procured a wooded property next to a university and transformed it into a one-of-a-kind workplace.

This forest sanctuary is nestled within the woods and designed to integrate seamlessly with nature. Concrete posts connect the building to ground. The entire structure feels as if it sprouted organically from the rolling hill upon which is rests.

A variety of raw materials—stone, wood, glass, steel—are combined to add visual complexity while staying true to the building's nature-driven aesthetic.

AIM's grand lobby features high ceilings, stained glass windows, and accents of greenery.

Contrary to cubicle stereotypes, these offices are flooded with natural light from the surrounding woods.
