Jay Miller Real Estate Brokerage is a successful real estate agency in Newmarket, Ontario.
The company’s team leader and Marketing Director had acquired a storefront space as an addition to their existing second floor, more conventional office. Miller had envisioned it as an open concept, multipurpose, flexible space for internal team meetings as well as the local community socials and events and named it The Meeting Room. The wish list for the new space also included two small meeting rooms.
The finished Meeting Room is a welcoming, airy hangout space with a small, modern reception desk, several easily movable tables and chairs, a large projector screen and an unpretentious yet chic kitchenette designed to accommodate both socials and daily staff use. The owner’s son has used chalk to write „The Meeting Room” above the servery counter, adding a more personal and final touch to the whole space.
The back of the Meeting Room houses two glass-walled meeting rooms, washrooms and a copy room/ storage. This area is used mostly by agents and their clients for closing transactions and therefore requires more confidentiality then the rest of the space. The special ceiling acoustic tiles, specified for this area only, ensure this additional privacy.
The Meeting Room rather industrial finishes reflect the casual character and purpose of this space. The corrugated steel wall cladding, pipe legged kitchenette table, and polished concrete floor are balanced by the warmth of brick and wood featured on the other walls. The modern colour scheme (with saturated black, red and yellow) make the space bold and enhances the branding of this vibrant, distinctive in the region company.
