D2 was engaged to design and implement exterior building upgrades and a full interior renovation with integral environmental graphics throughout. A major driver for Hartford Funds was to express that they “think differently” than the competition. For this reason, D2 designed a first-floor amenity space that encompassed the reception area, café, exterior patio, and new interconnecting 3-story stair. Visitors are greeted with a fully transparent view into the heart of the organization’s culture – building immediate trust with potential financial clients and establishing the reputation that Hartford Funds is open and honest, forward focused, and centered on human connection and relationships.
“Every element of the customized design was deliberately made to promote flexibility and collaboration, encourage movement, and optimize daylight, and we can now offer our employees a more enjoyable, more functional, and healthier work environment.”– Hartford Funds
