The ESSEX BVILDING, located in the heart of Downtown Norfolk, is the most sophisticated gathering place in our region. It is VIA design architects’ new model home and community hub. This beautiful example of 1910 Greek Revival architecture has been future-proofed and demonstrates the “Art of what’s possible” with the infusion of building automation and historic preservation combined. We are a BETA testing site for SIEMENS technology innovations and have intentionally designed our space to share with you. Here your staff meetings, retreats, board meetings, lunch and learn seminars, and community gatherings can go from uninspired to new beginnings. Our first floor transforms from a natural-light-flooded open space with visual urban street vibe connectivity, to private presentation mode with programmed touch pad controls. Lights dim, window blinds drop, and projector screen rolls into position.
