A great deal of thought went into the space that Mindex occupies in downtown Rochester. It needed to blend into the existing architecture that Alexander Street is known for, while also allowing for privacy and security.
The solution was to elevate the main floor, using wood siding, masonry and dark metals to add scale and break up the building’s mass, adding visual interest and neighborhood context, and as the anchor tenant for the new building, Mindex leaders were able to create the space they and their employees wanted.
Mindex moved into the city for its staffers, who enjoy the liveliness, nearby restaurants, nightlife and things to do that downtown offers. The new space features a sleek restaurant-style breakroom with sophisticated vending and deluxe coffee machines and an outdoor patio. Included in the design were modern iron curtains, architectural lighting and custom furniture, as well as state-of-the-art technology.
Connection to the outdoors, such as natural light and large windows, provides inspiration and motivation. The custom-designed pinwheel desks promote teamwork and flexibility. The space also features bright and spacious collaboration areas.
Edge Architecture designed the interior space. Edge Building and Construction completed the build-out while the developer, Buckingham Properties, completed the exterior and rest of the building.
