With the recent remodel to its office building on Main Street, Coldwell Banker Mammoth Real Estate has updated its physical profile and gained a lot of bang for its buck.
The remodel started last September and finished in mid-January. Eric Fishburn and his crew did the remodel. Corinne Brown consulted on exterior colors.
The Coldwell Banker building had a dated interior, with lowered, acoustical-tile ceilings, bead-board walls and nailed wood planking on the floors. Not to mention a nondescript exterior that had become worn.
The new entrance welcomes the visitor through artful, solid mahogany double doors.
Once in the foyer, an expanse of 16-inch square slate tiles sets a considerable change in atmosphere from the original nailed wood floors.
Fishburn lifted the ceiling in the foyer, reception area and conference rooms, giving them a lighter, airier feel.
Two matching conference rooms connect through another set of mahogany double doors, and each room is outfitted with computer and large, wall-mounted flat screen for ease in showing clients comparable real estate or listings in the area. In each room, Fishburn added leaded glass windows.
The lighting has been redone, too. Gone are the acoustical tiles, replaced by high ceilings hung with dramatic, suspended drum lamps.
And then there’s the exterior paint job – a combination of rustic red, deep bittersweet chocolate and gray.
All colors were approved by the Town’s color subcommittee. Although the first gray chosen was considered cold and not welcoming as a body color, Coldwell Banker came up with another, warmer shade of gray, which is considered pleasing by the Town.
The interior also has the feel of an art gallery, with a collection of landscapes by Galen Rowell on loan from the Mountain Light Gallery in Bishop.
