A Functional Classroom with a Splash of Style & Comfort

Hawkins Companies is a commercial real estate, property development & management company with properties spanning 23 states.  The company headquarters is located in the 8th Street marketplace in Boise, Idaho.  Mindy Gronbeck, Director of Property Management for Hawkins recently came to OEC with the desire to refresh their training room.  Mindy asked for something fun, beautiful, flexible, and space optimized to accommodate meetings with up to 45 employees.

The design of the classroom was a collaborative effort.

  • Gina Roberts Wagner, Interior Designer with Seed Interiors, picked flooring, colors, fabrics, and lighting.
  • Gabriella Garcia, Designer with OEC, worked on the classroom layout and furniture selection.  

The classroom has a mixture of traditional corporate training furniture and lounge furniture.  The term used in the design world to describe this mixture is “resimercial” meaning the blend of commercial and residential furniture.  More and more these days the corporate campus is being designed to include furniture that is comfortable, beautiful, and fun. 

More photos of the training room can be seen below.  Kudos to Gina and Gabriella for their excellent work!
