Commercial Renovation in Farmville

This commercial renovation in Farmville, Virginia started with a request to analyze the space to determine how many offices and conference rooms could be added in the existing building. The existing space and finishes did not fit the aesthetic that the law firm wanted to present to their clients, so we had to figure out how to efficiently insert their program and upgrade the aesthetics. This is a common challenge when innovative businesses look to relocate. The existing building stock is almost always dated and rarely represents the company that is growing.

We worked through the program, analyzed room sizes, developed an overall aesthetic, and worked within the existing structural system of the building to develop a refined layout. There are access controls that allow clients to feel welcomed into the building without giving full access to spaces that require privacy. We learned how the company works to deliver the most efficient layout that still feels open and welcoming to visitors to the space. We determined durable building products that could be added to the exterior while keeping the project on budget to upgrade a dated façade into a creative building solution.

This project in Farmville will allow this business to continue to grow, and the building itself will act as a marketing tool to set the tone for future clients. Thinking through the flow of spaces, security, privacy, structural systems, and budget is a key to keeping a renovation on track.
