Implemented first at a location in Toronto, HOK’s design brings new life to the client reception area, hospitality counter, meeting areas and sales offices. The design employs high-end finishes and detailing with marble, wood paneling and porcelain slabs creating an upscale look and feel. The “fireplace” in the client reception area uses a water-based system to imitate flames and is a focal point for the space.
The overall design creates a comfortable residential feel – atypical of banking environments and marking a new era of spaces for the TD Wealth Management division that removes the stuffiness of such institutions.
The new environment has been hugely beneficial to the client for recruiting new investment analysts, which is critical to the ongoing success of the business. HOK delivered a successful, repeatable, cost-effective design standard – completed on time and on budget – to be implemented across the country.
