Polished concrete floor runs throughout ecobee’s new expansive and airy office with collaborative areas branching off the main corridors. Designed by Ray, park-like benches and bright green carpets establish more intimate meeting areas where teams can convene. Boardrooms maintain the space’s outdoor vibe, encased in steel factory-style windows.
NEWS FROM RAY
Seeking self-motivated and creative Interior Designer w/min. 3 years of experience in Corporate interior design. Must have a degree from an accredited Interior design school and very strong CAD skills. Must have planning skills and knowledge of construction details, permit drawings and contract furniture. Revit and 3D software experience would be great additional skills.
THE VISION: Collaborating with design firm, Ray Inc., Ironbridge Equity Partners wanted their newly-acquired, 35th floor office space in downtown Toronto to have a much different look and feel than their previous more traditional offices of dark wooden doors and furniture and little access to natural light. Given a set budget, Ray Inc. was tasked with creating a bright and contemporary space for their client.
After almost 30 years in business, the founders of Raymond Chiappetta and Associates—a Toronto-based commercial interior designer—moved on and sold the business to two of its partners. Principals Joe Trozzo and Isabelle Talbot embraced the transition as an opportunity to update their brand, bring it in alignment with their personalities, and truly take ownership of how they’re seen in the market.
