Before designs for One Eleven East were even set in motion, we knew that one of our top priorities for the space would be versatility. Part of our vision for One Eleven East is for it to be a blank canvas where creatives have the freedom to do what they do best— create! Rather than limiting ourselves (and yourselves) exclusively to weddings or photoshoots or pop ups, we have always intended for this building to be more of a space than a venue. To us, the word “space" connotes more possibility. This has influenced every aspect of the design, and we’re constantly asking ourselves questions like “will this decision lend itself to a bride who needs an aisle to walk down, a business retreat that needs a standard table, chair, and podium set-up, and a photographer who needs to hang a floor-to-ceiling backdrop on a large, empty wall?” And within those possibilities, we try to think of even more variations of uniqueness that would best utilize the historic, urban, and timeless nature of our space.
Because most likely no one’s opinions will be as warranted as a bride’s, we’ve especially taken into account the number of set-ups possible for wedding ceremonies. The tally seems to grow day by day, and just when we think we’ve exhausted all of the options, somebody will think of a new one! What’s perhaps most exciting about these combinations is that they’re innovative and geared towards couples who are looking for a unique space that allows them to dream up their ideal setting and make their wedding as different or similar to others as they prefer. Though we have numerous layout options and ceremony locations, there’s always the possibility for new minds to see the space in a new way. Oh, the possibilities... if we weren’t so excited about them, they may give us a headache! We are, however, thrilled to see this space transformed as each thought-out design decision comes to life, so much so that we have curated some concept imagery to get your heads stirring with ways One Eleven East can be both practically and creatively used:
