Velocity Ventures which is an automotive service center franchise wanted to create a functional and flexible corporate office from 2,000 square feet of space, while maintaining an open loft feel.
Creating multi-use, flexible areas in a small footprint was a top priority. Creating an open plan required special attention to lighting, particularly for an interior hallway, reception area, and non-windowed offices. Showcasing the core business also required thoughtful blending of non-traditional finishes with high performance, visually compatible furnishings.
Using non-traditional design elements such as a roll up, metal garage doors and barn doors, Facilitec was able to provide convertible spaces which could readily meet privacy and collaborative needs. By combining this glass garage door with transom windows for interior offices, natural daylight was maximized, achieving the desired open feel. Brick detailing, stained concrete floors, window muntins and a creative combination of high efficiency fluorescent, pendant, and decorative lighting worked to effectively brand the space.
