Project Spotlight: Warehouse Office Expansion

Project Spotlight: Warehouse Office Expansion

When you realize you’re growing at a faster rate than expected, improvisation happens. As our team in Charlotte continues to grow, we realized we were in need of more space. Initially, we thought that adding a new office would take months of labor. Little did we realize an entire new office could go up in a matter of weeks!

We decided to get creative and use a Matrix frame system to build out an entire new office. We used aluminum extrusion to create walls and then reversed the extrusion in order to create windows for the office. With additional shadow box trim around the openings, we have clean, finished edges that allow you to seamlessly tuck in the graphics. Plus—with tension fabric graphics for the walls, you can easily change out the ambiance in the room without even having to paint!  

Matrix Frames have hundreds of applications and we cannot wait to surprise our colleagues with their new office space.

Project Spotlight: Sherman College

Project Spotlight: Sherman College

Sherman College of Chiropractic is a private college founded in 1973, offering the doctor of chiropractic degree, which was named after Lyle Sherman. The college is home to approximately 450 students representing 42 states and 13 countries and has more than 3,000 alumni around the world.

For this project, we used a subtle gray fabric graphic print to match the existing walls and hallways throughout the floor. By fitting the silicone edge fabric graphics into the extrusion on the aluminum frames, the shell of the rooms quickly turned into divided work spaces for the students and faculty. In addition to providing more privacy in the common area, the true benefit of using fabric graphics is that it can all move to a new section of the college, break down is quick and storage is easy, plus you can simply swap out the fabrics of the walls if you wanted to have a different color, logo, or photo stretched across the rooms.

Project Spotlight: SENE Studio

SENE Studio is a design-focused collection of truly custom-tailored goods built from scratch to fit you. Their collections are modern, functional, and offer fresh and sustainable alternatives to mass-produced clothes. SENE, originally based in New York City, reached out to XP Retail to work on their expansion to the West Coast. 

With two lightboxes, we completed their vision for an ultramodern space in their very first Los Angeles location. The first lightbox created a bold statement as customers walked into the showroom while the second helped pull your attention through the store and effortlessly transition into their corporate offices. 

The fabric change outs work perfectly with the SENE brand because it gives them the flexibility to change graphics with each season and helps them continue to showcase another unique application of fabric.

XP Retail worked with SENE’s contractor to build a lightbox that could fit within a custom made, rotating swivel system, in order for it to be converted into a multi-functional door. The lightboxes also utilized LED’s that can remain on continuously without generating heat.  Frame and graphic installation by XP Retail.
