John Casablancas

When John Casablancas Modeling & Career Center in Rocky Hill, CT chose Solidus to create their new space, President Tina M. Kiniry’s vision was clear – make it bright, make it fun, make it modern. This renovation of an existing space was completed within a short timeframe, accommodating the client’s tight deadline for move-in.

The Solidus team developed creative, yet budget-friendly design solutions to provide John Casablancas with the greatest return on investment. The creative use of graphic elements, such as red walls and blocks of primary color throughout the carpet, lend a bold, contemporary feel to the facility. By incorporating laminates on millwork, adding dramatic lighting, and updating existing elements, Solidus created a high-end look at an affordable price. With its state-of-the art runway, photo areas, make-up rooms and commercial acting studio, the end result is an innovative space where models can hone their talent in a creative, inviting environment.

“Image is everything in our business. We had been looking for years for a new space that would meet our needs. Solidus gave us confidence – their team was great from creative ideas to final move-in. We represent models who work both nationally and internationally, who say our new offices are the best they have ever seen. I believe our new training and workspace will help take our business to the next level.”
