Social Gatherings

“Celebrate:" to honor by ceremony of joy and respect, or by refraining from ordinary business to observe duly.

The Especially Beautiful Architecture of Antonio Gaudi's Casa Batlio

One never needs a reason to celebrate, and there will always be a need for face to face human interaction that lifts the spirit. The live event remains the original and most powerful form of social networking and simply cannot be replaced.

As new or renovated design projects are completed, there is a constant stream of new and exciting venue options, both in your neighborhood or where you choose to celebrate. The richness of detail found in historic or landmark buildings provides a grand setting for an important life or company event; whereas the simplicity and often blank palate of a contemporary building, with sweeping dramatic shapes and surfaces, can be transformed into a spectacular visual experience. The possibilities are limited only by the creative forces of the design team.

If you need an empty space of a specific size and style, we will find you your optimal “four walls and a ceiling.” If you want to see how it will work for the particulars of your event, we can provide design concepts and drawings, and a preliminary budget.

Our recommended places to celebrate are intended to represent a range of settings. The main thread that carries throughout is that the architectural setting makes a statement — your statement.
