Colombian Consulate

Newark, NJ/ Orlando & Coral Gables, FL

Responding to the needs of the Colombian communities living in the New York and Central and South Florida areas, where there is a high demand for services, the general consulate of Colombia approved three new offices intended to become flagship designs providing 21st century consulates with technology to respond to a globalized world. The consulates include private and public areas consisting of: the consulate’s office; private offices; a private waiting and reception area for Diplomats and VIPs; a storage/pantry area; and a public area including a reception/waiting area and stations for public assistance with passports, ID’s, affidavits and notarizations.

In Orlando and Newark, the firm was commissioned to redesign existing office space in downtown Class A buildings. The locations were reused and redesigned to accommodate the government’s specific requirements. 
The firm recently completed the design and construction administration for the renovation of the existing two-story, 10,000 sf Coral Gables location, which was built in 1925.
