Assante was not your typical investment firm functionality or style. Assante specializes in generational family wealth and has labeled its self as a Family Office. To reflect this, all offices were required to be set up as meeting rooms because more than two clients are often present during the meetings. To keep meetings confidential, Assante requested sound barriers to deafen the private conversations to outside parties. To purvey a feeling of safety and comfort for clients, the atmosphere needed to be warm. Assante also wanted to have the flexibility to entertain in a designated area. As a requirement, this designated area needed to be large enough for small functions. Furthermore, the company required a minimum of five offices and several sufficient task areas for support staff.
