Lionakis had its annual end of the year event this past week. Employees from every office gathered together in Sacramento at the iconic Citizen Hotel. It was a fitting venue as the founder of Lionakis designed the original building in 1927, now recognized as the first high rise in Sacramento. Being able to celebrate our hard work over this past year in the very place our founder designed was both humbling and inspiring. The event showcased many things including videos, presentations, touching stories and of course some creative challenges like being a gingerbread architect – because designing buildings is what we do best. The gingerbread houses were far from simply houses, the designers minds’ began churning and the competition was on. Each team came up with something different, and there were 18 masterpieces in all. “The Citizen Hotel” gingerbread was the clear winner! Check out our pictures to see all of the creative designs.
