ORLANDO, FL--- Rhodes+Brito, an Orlando architectural firm, recently completed design work for a major renovation project – Destination Lounge – at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

Max Brito, co-founder and partner at Rhodes+Brito, said construction of the approximate $1.8 Million project is underway by Pillar Construction Group and is expected to be completed this month (August).

Brito said the Destination Lounge features state-of-the-art technology.  The 7,311 square foot lounge was designed as a place for people attending conventions and conferences at OCCC to slip away, plug in laptops, iPads or smart phones and even access giant screens from their devices.  Plans include a bar and uniquely designed contemporary furniture.

Brito said the Destination Lounge project is part of a continuing architectural services contract the firm has with Orange County to provide miscellaneous architectural and engineering services for County projects not to exceed $2 million.

As part of that ongoing contract, Rhodes+Brito and Pillar Construction recently completed Vision Gardens at OCCC, consisting of two interior climate-controlled vegetable gardens with planters.   

Vision Gardens is located adjacent to the west building entrance at the complex and is being cultivated to grow vegetables and spices for use in the center’s concession areas and future outdoor cafes.

Destination Lounge and Vision Gardens are part of Orange County’s overall plan to “recreate the convention center” implementing projects to be more Green and appeal more to millenials, Brito explained.
