Over their fifteen years as a company, TONO has moved a few times -- each time, they’ve brought in the Dudes to help make their space as special as their brand and offerings.
“Even then, [Two Dudes] got what we were about. The care that was taken then, in a historic row home, and giving it new life as our company offices was really important,” says TONO’s Managing Principal and Owner, Hunter Johnson, speaking of TONO’s first office on East Chestnut Street.
One of our favorite features are the maple horizontal slat walls, which we worked to match to the historical, original maple floors throughout the office. These details, small and large, and their integration, creates the tangible proof of the thought TONO puts behind each of their projects.
Two Dudes Painting Company worked closely with TONO Group to align each and every detail, resulting in a seamless renovation that leaves visitors wondering what remains from the original building’s frame and structure, what’s been re-purposed, and what elements are actually brand new. The resounding consensus among TONO staff and visitors alike is that every element, from old to new, blends together as a cohesive whole -- from the inside out.
“As designers first, it is all about the details. It’s all about the execution in being systematic, and thoughtful about how every piece comes together to contribute to the greater whole,” says Hunter.
“The collaborative nature and forethought that went into the process… just made it so simple,” Hunter says in describing the nature of how the new office came together.
Even the exterior of the building speaks to what goes on inside of those walls. We collaborated with TONO to make sure the building kept the integrity and character of its pre-existing structure and history, but still reflects TONO’s innovative brand. An example of this effort is the building’s exterior, which we put through a number of treatments in order to get it to its new dark gray hue -- garnished with TONO’s logo, some of which is painted directly on the brick.
Here at Two Dudes, we’re proud of the lasting relationship we’ve created with TONO Group, and we’re looking forward to years of continued collaboration on projects of all sizes and types.
