SPACE: 5,000 sf
CAPREIT’s new center city office conveys style, quality, and the comforts of home—just like their multifamily residential properties.
INDUSTRY: Residential Real Estate
CAPREIT wanted their new center city space to reflect the same values and image they have cultivated in their upscale apartment communities. Formcraft created a modern, comfortable space with homey residential touches.
Their Philadelphia office features hard wall offices for the executive team as well as a large conference room and multipurpose lounge and kitchen area. Glass walls bring light into the interior spaces. A crisp color pallet of blues, greys, black and white—echoing their corporate colors—creates a space that is both modern and welcoming. Wood flooring and soft furniture bring warmth to the reception and lounge areas.
The use of strategically selected design elements, such as eye-catching lighting features and the striking black marbleized table in the conference room, give the office its personality. Pictures from CAPREIT’s apartment communities were combined into a wall-size mural of the Philadelphia skyline in the reception area. Homelike touches, like the island seating in the kitchen, evoke the residential communities that they manage.
While they initially were only seeking an architecture and design firm, CAPREIT ultimately chose Formcraft to manage the entire process, from initial design to construction and fit-out. This ensured smooth implementation of their design vision, with no unexpected surprises or cost increases along the way. Their project was completed on time and within budget. Now, they have a space where they are proud to bring investors, partners, and vendors.
