Monday 18 Mar 2013
When you are working with a company with retail stores all over the world, it is imperative to have a strong office to back it up. The Luxottica Group is known as a leader in premium fashion, luxury and sports eyewear. This exciting project is an interior space of 30,000 sq ft of the existing building, as well as, an entire renovation of the façade.
The interior space includes two floors for 40 corporate offices, a spacious cafeteria, meeting rooms, open offices, and two large bullpen areas on both floors. The layout is well thought-out and designed to produce a highly efficient work environment. The lobby entrance is a contemporary design with sleek, clean lines and an inviting feel. Planes of stainless steel, glass walls, neutral colours of dark grey and white with a bold red accent create the space.
This red accent is carried through to the new exterior of the building, as a perforated metal panel over aluminum composite panels. The majority of the façade is a curtain wall over 20 feet high, and aluminum composite panels frame the elevation. This new contemporary design will benefit our clients’ needs greatly, as well as bring architecture into the community.
