Strategically located in the heart of the City of Buffalo, 50 Fountain Plaza provided an ideal setting for Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation. The need for new Corporate Offices developed from the company’s growth across a national and international client base.
This 22,730 square foot renovation featured a mostly open work flow environment, to promote collaboration and a sense of community between the various departments and their employees. The perimeter had few enclosed offices and conference areas, which allowed for a sense of inclusiveness to the overall team environment, taking advantage of and sharing the available exterior views of the City surroundings. This design also included a number of synergistic spaces, to increase the frequency of and encourage inter-departmental collision and collaboration. An informal gathering/social space was included at the base of the intercommunicating monumental stair that connects the two occupied floors at the Reception and Waiting areas.
Warm, bright, dynamic colors and crisp lines were a constant throughout this design, which reflected Ciminelli’s goal of modernization in reflective sync with the ongoing changes in the City.
