McMillan Pazdan Smith worked closely with both Coldwell Banker Caine and Amy Emery Design to completely overhaul the entire facility, originally built in 1972. The transformed space now features a Mid-Century Modern look, grounded with clean lines, open spaces, glass walls, and local artwork.
To completely re-envision the 15,000 SF building, the design team approached the project in two phases. Small offices were positioned along the exterior walls of the upper floor featuring glass separations in place of traditional solid walls and doors. Large central open work areas extend visibility and increase collaboration among agents, while flex spaces offer work stations for employees not assigned to permanent desk space. The second phase of the project addressed the building’s exterior and lower floor.
The lower level is central to the firm’s community focus, offering over 5,000 SF of meeting and gathering space and a 1,000 SF patio. A full kitchen and long “community table” provide a central focal point for gatherings, while a retractable glass wall to the patio and built-in grill extend the space’s entertaining capabilities outdoors. The “Family Room” includes modular seating, a large screen TV, and arcade video game consoles and other retro games. Retractable walls separate this space from the kitchen, allowing it to convert to a much larger room for firm-wide occasions and large events. The bottom floor also includes a boardroom for formal agent training sessions.
