A financial services startup company in Hamilton, Ontario, took its design cues from high-end coffee shops in an effort to make clients feel more comfortable.
According to the Hamilton Spectator, 19-year industry veteran Sandy Alfonsi recently opened the Financial Wellness Center on Hamilton’s Pritchard Road. The facility includes a boardroom, a large office space for lease and smaller satellite rooms for short-term leases or meetings by appointment. But the activity hub of the new office is a common area that features club chairs, bistro tables, a fireplace and an espresso bar.
“You see professionals holding meetings in cafés all the time, so why not bring that feeling to our office space?” Alfonsi asked the Spectator.
