New York, New York
This 7th Avenue lobby renovation, focused on creating a modern face for a 21-story office building built in 1920. The new facade glazing increases the amount of light in the 850 square foot space and has a varied frit pattern, creating a unique marker for the building and adjusting openness in response to the interior program. A new revolving door and entrance doors, new interior finishes, and elevator upgrades easily accommodate the lobby's intense traffic. Warmth is created by new light fixtures and a custom-built wood reception desk. Lastly, building upgrades including HVAC supply, sprinkler heads, signage, and the security system complete the renovation of the space.
