The client’s vision for this project is not only exciting but has already made a significant impact on the City of Troy and creative professionals in the area. The intent was to create an open environment that houses both Gramercy Communications and Troy Innovation Garage placing a successful, national communications firm with a co-working environment for creative entrepreneurs.
The design concept of the two story, 13,000 SF +/- building includes open shared spaces to collaborate with accessory conference and meeting rooms (one of which having an actual garage door) as well as rent-able spaces for the design professional who is in need of short-term or long-term space. The interior finishes utilize the raw charm of an old building; two story entry with diamond plate steel stairs, exposed rafters and steel beams, original brickwork, and expansive windows. This is juxtaposed with an abundance of technological advances and modern furnishings throughout.
