The new building needed to reinforce the three-generation long business of Wells Insurance and their brand of consistency and high performance. The space needed its own fresh feel to express the understated elegance of Wrightsville Beach and the surrounding area. The richness of the lobby space is found within woodwork details of trim and coffered ceiling, large contemporary lantern style fixtures, and seagrass rugs placing leather reception furniture. Wide plank faux wood flooring in a herringbone pattern adds richness and durability to the space by its visual texture and thick rubber backing that absorbs sound. From the lobby you see into the consultation rooms, which are more intimate spaces to confer with clients. These spaces highlight local landscape through artwork and coastal inspired furnishings.
The large conference room is dramatic and showcases beautifully handcrafted heart pine conference table made locally by Sound Side Carpentry. Big Sky specified this as a reference to the historic location of the downtown office. The dramatic light fixture up above is their beacon at night as people pass by on Oleander Drive. "The exceptional service, extensive product knowledge and professional demeanor of Big Sky added to the pleasant experience of the construction of our new branch Office on Oleander Drive. They gave us a great coastal look with a wonderful eye for detail and color, all within our budget. We are proud of our new office, thanks in part to Big Sky, and would highly recommend them." - Harold Wells, Wells Insurance
