With the new year arriving we have BIG news.....We are getting BIGGER!
Eugene has been working with the landlord in Richmond at our current office location on Church Rd to extend our office footprint so we can accommodate additional design and production staff. The expanded office will allow for an additional eight design members plus give office space for general administration and an executive office for Eugene no that he will be spending more time in RVA assisting the growth of the firm.
The new space will allow for the creation of an open office plan in the production area much like we already have in Virginia Beach. The principle and founder of Ionic DeZign Studios, Eugene says, "The new renovations will promote the interaction of the design team during the collaboration of a project development. We have been successful with this concept in Virginia Beach and feel it will likewise be so in Richmond."
While WHHA previously focused primarily on church and other religious centered projects. With the merging of the two firms, Eugene indicated, "We are beginning to focus on introducing our current VB portfolio of offices, retail, restaurants and financial institutions. In order to do so, the interior renovations will depict our design skills and creativity for these markets. We have excelled in using technology to help promote our designs and present our concepts. The plan for the renovated conference rooms, materials library and reception will continue that theme. We look forward to sharing the new space with our clients and consultants."
WHHA + Ionic DeZign Studios hopes to have an open house in the fall to share in the new renovations and celebration of the first year of combined firms. The new space will reflect the vitality and creativity that has embodied the firm over the many years in business. It is expected to be unique in nature and surely a one of a kind statement. Eugene will likely create some of the architectural features himself. "Expect to see some fun ideas presented in the custom light fixtures, conference tables and reception desk just like we have done in VB. It has become a little bit of a 'brand expectation' that our clients see one of a kind chandlers or some type of lighting made by us for their spaces. We will continue to share those ideas within our own walls."
Those interested in joining our team add becoming associates of a fast growing and rewarding design practice, please reach out and contact us with your resume at info@WHHAdezigns.com. We would love to chat with you after the adventure we are planning.
Be on the look out for an invite this fall for RVA but until then feel free to join us at our Open House Event in VB on the 18th of February. We look forward to seeing everyone and sharing in our continued growth.
