Stantec has designed the new offices of textile company Valley Forge Fabric, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The family-owned Valley Forge Fabrics is passionate about their heritage. The brother/sister management team puts their employees first and wanted to give them a new space that would improve their general wellbeing in every sense. Stantec created an inspiring, creative and healthy environment for the company’s employees. With a neutral base palette, the company’s fabric is showcased as the interior’s star and delivers a sense of place.
Grays and whites are offset with pops of fuchsia, red, orange, purple and peacock colors throughout the open work areas, conference rooms and offices. “We wanted to design a visually appealing and inspiring setting, as well as a functional environment, because at the end of the day, Valley Forge employees need a space where they can do their best work,” said interior designer Barbara Savage, senior associate at Stantec’s Miami office. “We implemented playful elements including an indoor soccer field and slide, while also incorporating custom designed standing work counters with space to roll out fabrics.”
