Visnick & Caulfield helped Toppan Merrill to reimagine their offices with maximum benefits while maintaining their budget. In a space designed for conferencing, the café was made to create a harmony between clients and employees. Hot serving stations stole the floor, while an internal prep pantry is tucked away. Carefully planned material changes break up the light wood floors, while providing an element of way-finding for those less familiar with the space. VC highlighted the views of the location by keeping the café seating light and open. A dark blue accent paint on exterior walls further frames the authentic city scenery and reappeared in the lounge corridor. As the dark accent gives way to bold stripes and integrated LED lights, a straightforward corridor is transformed into a rhythmic experience.
