Friedman’s Construction and Design Transforms Office Space Into A Showroom Office Space
The office space, located in Livonia, Michigan, features 9,000 SF and an outdoor patio space.
For this project, the Construction and Design team worked on reconfiguring the entire space, offering full-service design build, restructured drainage, and updated the interior design of the work space.
The original work space featured old built-in place work stations that didn’t encourage collaboration and offered little room for departmental growth or downsizing needs. The lobby lacked functionality, thus was rarely used and included a large door that closed off the rest of the office. The overall office space didn’t showcase their lighting products and therefore lacked the capability to host clients. In the past clients would meet off site rather than at Gasser Bush’s Office.
To resolve these issues, the lobby was reconfigured into a lounge. The new lobby space now includes a wet bar and is located next to the large conference room and the small conference room. The lobby is no longer dead space, it is now functional to hold large client meetings and features areas for collaborative work and can still be used as a waiting/reception area. The large conference room and wet bar area also feature glass sliding doors so clients can see the lighting displays regardless if the doors are closed or open.
Remodeling the space included the need to accommodate clients so Gasser Bush could use the office for presentations, client events and act as a showroom featuring lighting displays throughout the office. The various lighting displays showcase the wide variety of lighting that Gasser Bush supplies, including outside lighting featured on the patio.
Outdoor patio space after renovations.
The kitchen offers a garage door so the patio and the kitchen are connected. The garage door can be opened to bring the outside in and can be used for larger events. A private/quiet room was also added to be used for mothers or a private space for employees if needed.
