UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE

Grand Wealth Management, a local financial advising company, recognized the need for a larger, more collaborative office space. They selected an office suite on the 8th floor of the Bridgewater Building in downtown Grand Rapids and enlisted Ghafari to design the fit out. We worked closely with the owner to understand their needs for potential future expansion and the importance of creating a division between public and private spaces.

TAILORING THE SOLUTION

The completed office space includes a large entry lobby, three conference rooms, five private offices, a break area, work room, private phone booth, server / storage room, 950 SF open air patio, six open-plan employee workspaces, and four collaborative employee and client workspaces. The open office space was designed with additional room for expansion, and the collaborative workspaces were designed to be used as offices as the team expands. In addition to a formal conference room, the space also provides a “living room-style” conference room that overlooks the Grand River and is equipped with a sofa, chairs, and coffee table, in an effort to put clients at ease and make money conversations more comfortable.

SUPPORTING WHAT MATTERS

This new office space gives the Grand Wealth Management team a more collaborative work environment where they can comfortably grow their team. As clients enter the space, they are greeted by a unique ceiling design that provides a feeling of continuity within the reception space leading towards their large conference room.
