Empire Office collaborated with design firm A+I to transform three floors of amenity space at 780 Third Avenue. Featuring a serene garden, restaurant, bar, and a variety of touchdown spots, the design intent was hospitality-driven and aimed to promote healthy living for the building’s tenants and visitors. Over 20+ manufacturers were used, including Andreu World, Bernhardt, JSI, Muuto, Narbutas, and Resident Furniture to name a few. Custom millwork by Fabricate is incorporated throughout the biophilic amenity space. To meet a variety of needs, a tenant-only work lounge, mother’s room, and several collaboration areas were carefully considered for this development.
After months of solidifying product specifications and architectural details, Empire Office and A+I were able to truly bring this space to life and maintain the overall budget along with the client’s design aesthetic.
Empire Office proudly worked alongside Perkins & Will to bring this new state of-the-art recreation and rental facility in Sunny Isles Beach, FL to life during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Gateway Center is a place for socialization, engagement and leisure amongst Sunny Isles Beach residents in a relaxing and calm oceanfront location. Amenities include a 3,600 SF ballroom with banquet seating, social hallway with various types of seating and game tables, large and small classrooms and a catering kitchen. Empire worked closely with over 25 manufacturers throughout the pandemic to furnish this multifaceted space in what was a true team effort as order entry began in January 2020 and the project installed in August 2020.
The client was so pleased with the outcome that Empire has now created a new standard for product to be used in other City of Sunny Isles buildings and centers.
