Hay Design has been retained numerous times over the past decade to provide interior design concepts and services to upgrade the interior and exterior finishes, and landscaping for Osgoode condominium properties throughout Ottawa and Gatineau. Updates have included repainting of the exterior façades, replacement of front entrance canopies, and replacement of existing benches, lighting, furniture, artwork, and planters. Our team worked with the existing elements of the building to provide a design solution that would refresh the over appearance of the spaces yet keep the modification to a minimum.
The goal was to refresh and update the overall appearance of the common areas – lobbies, mail room, elevators and corridors – and create a modern, warm and welcoming entrance to the properties. The buildings were constructed decades ago, so the challenge was to provide a design concept that not only complementary to all existing architectural elements in the buildings, and design features in the lobby areas, but also refresh the finishes in the space. Working with a limited budget, we created a warm and welcoming lobby for the residents, and incorporated new elements to create a timeless aesthetic.
