Paul Eanes, Vice President of Sales for Metroflor, is delighted with the ASPECTA installation at KeyCorp Bank in Cleveland.
KeyCorp is one of the nation’s largest banks, with assets of approximately $93.8 billion. Providing the very best facilities for their employees is an important part of the business culture. When the company wanted to renovate the employee café, they commissioned leading architect practice Vocon to transform the space.
Housed in the Key Tower building, the bank’s offices are somewhat iconic with marble features, classic columns and a stained glass roof. The client wanted a modern feel to the café but while the space is very conducive to a contemporary style, this stunning atrium area in particular needed a less institutional feel – the previous floor was linoleum! It needed to have some warmth.
ASPECTA FIVE’s Mason Oak Pumice was therefore chosen to help create a much more inviting look and feel and complement the brown rattan furniture, palm trees and other accessories.
Commercial sales specialist Annie McGinty was very much involved in the specification and I think we can be truly proud of the final result. Chuck Fairfield, general manager of the café, loves the brown and grey colors of
Mason Oak’s patina finish, which features a design of naturally worn, hand-planed planks. The overall effect is on one hand quite neutral, but on the other, the texture and embossing make it quite striking – together contributing to a very relaxing environment.
The Vocon team chose ASPECTA partly on grounds of its fantastic aesthetics, but also because of its durability, thickness and cleanability with no-wax needed. From a logistical perspective, we also provided reliability – getting the 10,500 square feet of product there on time!
I am especially delighted that the team is keen to use ASPECTA again.
