Legat Architects

From the Bridge

Curtain walls, orange towers, a curving roof form, and the organization’s distinctive building block logo announce the Ascentra brand to those approaching Bettendorf on the new I-74 Mississippi River Bridge that connects Illinois and Iowa.


“It’s like a living work of art for us.”

“The facility has provided efficiencies within each department and has fostered collaboration. There is a heightened sense of culture and more space in which to celebrate it.”


Local Artwork

Quad City Arts, a local arts advocacy group, contributed the sculpture that adorns the entry plaza.

“. . . a hallmark for Bettendorf, its downtown and the Quad-Cities.”

Cost Effective and Contemporary

The fiber cement panels that clad most of the exterior save costs while creating a contemporary look. Metal shingles create a “shelf” that separates upper and lower floors.
