Lights. Camera. Action! Solutions Architecture Celebrates It's 10 Year Anniversary in Grand Style!24 January 2020
In a night being compared to a Hollywood premiere, Solutions Architecture recently held it’s 10 Year Anniversary Gala and wow, did we do it in style! As architects, a big piece of our business is paying attention to and cultivating the details; in planning this momentous occasion, we relied upon that talent to create an event that would leave a lasting impression, as a thank you to our friends and guests alike. Considering the littlest of details, from the Hollywood-style searchlights outside, the valet parking and the “red carpet” entrance (really orange to match the company’s colors), to the branded ice-sculptures and amazing food prepared by the famed Brownstone, this much-anticipated event celebrated 10 Years of Success and Growth for Solutions Architecture.
This night provided an opportunity for us to showcase the significant body of work that we have amassed in our first 10 years along with the incredible design of our 3,900 square foot office, a stark contrast from our humble beginnings in Newark, NJ. Every screen in the office projected images of the company’s history or images of the work and relationships that have been developed over that time. Everyone dressed to impress and that’s certainly what the Solutions Family did during this night of celebration.
Clients, that have also become friends, could be found by one of the two bars, sipping martinis or enjoying their favorite cocktail; they were grouped around the sushi chef, relishing in his hand-made creations; they slurped oysters, clams and “ginormous” shrimp cocktails from the raw bar; or noshed on the gourmet lobster rolls, Philly cheesesteaks, sliders, devilish crab cakes and a lot more, all part of the landslide of food to be found that night. While the desserts included biscotti, pastries and cheesecake pops with the iconic “Solutions 10” logo on them, the hit of the night were giant sized pignoli cookies that stole the show.
There was music and laughter, accolades and reminiscing and every other thing one might expect when you bring ten years of relationships into a room with one another. Over one hundred seventy people attended the gala, with principal Frank Messineo personally thanking each guest as they left for taking the time to share in this wonderful milestone and for their well wishes for, “Ten more years!”
