Commercial spaces get updated
As the effects of the recession begin to recede, many corporations are beginning the process of remodeling offices and other public spaces. Technological advancements and a desire for a new, modern space is pushing forward this trend for renovation. For commercial residential spaces, like towers that house apartments above retail outlets or office spaces, the desire for statement lobbies that convey the overall dedication to quality and style is coming back.
Commercial and residential combine
"Commercial residential projects were not financed for a long while, and now that's really happening again. People are going back to the idea that quality is the way to go. I think developers should be mindful that the audience is savvy. They know about kitchen manufacturers, millwork, and fixtures, so you can't get tricky. Everything has to be thoughtful and well crafted," Christine Gachot, co-founder of New York's Gachot, told Interior Design Magazine.
Commercial spaces that act as lobbies and grand entrances to residential apartments above are growing in popularity. Many people enjoy the ability to walk by key stores on the way home, instead of having to run out and finish errands. Because this is a more unique offering, interior designers are focusing on making these retail spaces, which sometimes can hold restaurants, modern and enticing. Stakeholders in the property want these commercial spaces to offer services and products, but also an experience.
As a result, the use of innovative structures and design components is essential to the creation of these spaces.
