Hoffman Design Group is pleased to present a discussion on the importance of "good design" in our rapidly changing environment. For many people, home and office environments have been integrated. How does the collapsing of these radically different spaces impact our health and wellness? What opportunities does it present for long lasting change in commercial and residential design? Industry leaders Alicia DeLarge, Tina Delia and Nic Esposito will be joining us for an enlightening conversation exploring the future of design in these spaces. While the future may be uncertain, creative solutions in horticultural, interior, and human-centered design are abundant.
