The expansion to combine GDP Advisors’ original suite with the adjacent shell space was much like their approach to insurance – strategic and out of the box. While mindfully reusing many of the private offices and main conference room, the expansion focused on the new entry, entertainment-worthy break area, communal breakaway niches, and the executive suite. The additional space allowed the redesigned Podcast room to move to a prominent spot towards the new entry. To echo the classic aesthetic of GDP Advisors’ branding, subtle grey/blue tones were contrasted with stark white elements and warmed by the finished look of the concrete and wood laminate selection. Laminated encasements accent the new expanded suite providing warm wood touches with budget in mind and create a great visual flow adjoining the new with the existing suite. Branding metal logo tones of silver and gold gave direction for the signage wall. Made completely of budget friendly laminate, this new entry becomes the first visual, bridging the design intent of classic meets modern with an entertaining twist. The use of the geometric shapes accented with paint and metal banding creates interest as one journeys through the space.
