Scoppechio is one of the leading independent advertising agencies in the United States. They compete with agencies in major markets like NYC and Chicago. Scoppechio’s leaders had great expectations for their new offices when they elected to move from their longtime home in a historic office building into two floors of Kentucky’s tallest office tower. CEO Jerry Preyss stated it this way: “Our goal was to create a spatial experience that promotes effective collaboration across all practice disciplines within the agency, eliminating work silos while providing an inspiring and fun place to work every day.” Swope Design Group's relationship with Scoppechio goes back 23 years, enabling the collaboration with their staff and leaders that produced a dynamic, inviting, highly functional open floor plan that provides generous light to all areas and striking views of downtown and the Ohio River. State of the art technology occurs throughout the space, especially in the conference rooms and tech centers. Eye-catching graphics inspired by leaders from the worlds of art, architecture, sports, exploration and entertainment occur at key locations. Rowing machines, games, and a sliding board that connects the two-story space are employed to relieve stress and encourage collaboration. A 45-foot Pocock rowing shell serves as a signature art piece and hangs prominently within the space. It serves as a metaphor for teamwork and Scoppechio’s values.
