Sharing Is Caring - Co-working Spaces Are HOT

 

Our spotlight is on this stunner of an interior renovation in Charlotte, NC - CoCoTiv. Spearheaded by the RdM Architecture Team:

Rick Mack (Architect and General Contractor), Barrow Koslosky (Project Manager), Julia Badorrek (Intern Architect), Miriam Webster (Interior Designer), Doug Williams (Superintendent). What are some of the biggest challenges in renovating these co-working spaces: Acoustics! RdM solved this issue by using EchoPanel Hex Tiles: easy to apply and visually appealing, EchoPanel accomplished exactly what RdM was hoping to achieve.

According to Webster, “Providing prototype design services for this new co-working company required extensive research and conceptual initiatives into this emerging industry. RdM worked closely with the Owner to achieve maximum revenue opportunities by maximizing occupancy and memberships.”

CoCoTiv is situated on the 4th floor of the reimagined Park Seneca Building originally built in 1970, the 12,600 SF space has beautiful views of the uptown Charlotte skyline looking north and suburban views to South Park. Webster was pleased with the final design, calling it “an artful combination of hard, rough building components, exposed structure, systems, and utilities, and street graphics are softened with reclaimed wood and neutral fabrics with splashes of trendy color elements then blended into a gritty but comfortable urban oasis.” We love being part of the solution, and Kirei EchoPanel always delivers.

Q: Was sustainability important on this project? If so, what are some sustainable features of the design?

A: We aim to create sustainable spaces wherever we can. Kirei hex tiles, reclaimed wood, and polished concrete floors are three sustainable and minimal impact features in CoCoTiv.

Q: Any comments about your experience using this material?

A: We had a positive experience using the hex tiles! The tiles were easily installed and look great and are expected to contribute to the softened work environment and acoustical control.

Q: What was the outcome of project (client reaction, aesthetic/functionality goals achieved, LEED, etc.)?

A: Our client is thrilled with the outcome! The versatility of the tiles and tile patterns created reinforce the upbeat and collaborative environment of CoCoTiv’s corporate mission.
