Sensory Six is a commercial and residential design firm that focuses on comprehensive services to make their projects easy to manage.
The firm is located at 8 Butler Place in Saratoga Springs, a space that they say fits all of their needs.
Sensory Six President Sandra M. Fox said she feels Saratoga is a place that works for the nature of her business. As a resident of Saratoga Springs, she said she loves being able to both live and work in the area.
“I live in Saratoga Springs and love it here. It was important to me to have a studio that was close to home and also supports my values. Saratoga Springs is known for history, architecture, the arts, wellness, nature, beauty, and great restaurants, all of which are aligned with me and my business,” said Fox.
The Spa City is not only beneficial to her, but is a place that her entire staff is happy with because of its convenience and inspirational vibe.
“We love being downtown because it is convenient to everything. We have several clients in town, and it is wonderful to just be able to walk to your job sites for meetings and to check on construction details. On a more aesthetic perspective, our name is Sensory Six because we believe great design reflects all the senses. Our design studio was created to reflect that point of view and also showcase what we can do for our clients,” said Fox.
Sensory Six is a commercial and residential interior design firm that creates distinctive, high-end spaces. Fox said many of their clients love that they provide turnkey services for their design and building needs.
“It makes their lives so much easier. We also provide custom millwork, cabinetry, countertops, tile, plumbing fixtures, appliances, exterior stone, doors and just about anything else you can think of that may be necessary to create a space and complete a renovation or new build, in addition to the standard goods you would expect from an interior design firm such as furniture, rugs, lighting, wall coverings, window treatments, artwork, and décor accessories,” said Fox.
On the commercial end, she said, they focus on clients looking for boutique designs that set them apart from their competition. She said their commercial portfolio ranges from designing office spaces to retail businesses, with expertise in hospitality, restaurant, and multi-family building design.
“Increasingly, distinctive interior design provides an important differentiator for businesses who want to attract the best customers, employees and tenants. That’s where we come in. On the residential front, we provide luxury design services and materials to discriminating homeowners for their home and vacation properties,” said Fox.
Sensory Six began just over five years ago after Fox spent over 20 years as a professional in the engineering and architecture industry. She said the creation of Sensory Six was the result of combining her passions and strengths in the areas of design, project management, technology and business management.
“I started with zero projects and no employees and literally built the company from scratch. The business network I had developed during my career was the key to building the business,” said Fox.
Today, they are a company of seven people with commercial and residential projects all over the Capital Region, including the Druthers Brewing Co.’s Schenectady, Saratoga and Albany locations, Cantina Restaurant in Saratoga Springs, the RiverHouse Luxury Apartment in Schenectady, Seneca Restaurant in Saratoga Springs and Tyler Technologies in Latham.
Fox said they are currently in the process of a project involving an outdoor restaurant and bar space for summer of 2020. They also have the state Woman Owned Business Enterprise certification pending that could open up opportunities to both design and provide goods and materials for development projects planned throughout New York State.
They also intend to expand hospitality and restaurant design services nationally.
