Project overview

The Davis Companies, a large real estate investment firm, was looking to renovate the amenity spaces for one of its corporate office buildings. The goal was to renovate the lobby, cafeteria, exterior patio, fitness facility, and 4th floor marketing suite. I worked with the design team and took primary responsibility of designing the overall presentation slide deck and producing millwork shop drawings for the concierge desk and coffee bar.


Existing space

The existing lobby had the concierge desk front and center as the first thing you see when you walk in. The furnishings, although only a few years old, already looked dated and sterile. The client wanted to create more of a relaxed, lounge-y feel, similar to a hotel lobby.


The design

Working with project managers and the principal of the design team, I designed three custom pieces of millwork for the lobby - a concierge desk, a coffee bar, and a beer/wine bar. This new cabinetry is surrounded by a triangular walnut profile that would wrap around its exterior, with push latch doors and a black quartz countertop. The concierge desk is cantilevered at one side, with the space below to fit a custom Chesterfield ottoman.

Presentation deck

I was responsible for designing the slide deck that was presented to the clients. This 13-page presentation deck included inspiration images, budgets for each space to be renovated, furniture selections, and color rendered images.
