John worked with RGVD on the fit-out of a simple newsstand in the center core of Hartford’s historical train station. John led the field investigation, design, preparation of construction documents, and administration of construction. Many elements had to be ‘shoe-horned’ into a very tight, narrow space. So, creativity and ingenuity were paramount in finding efficiencies and properly organizing the space. In addition, security and durability were critically important due to the high volume nature of the business. Thoughtful graphics and an attractive display were also essential to the vitality of the newsstand.
