The main lobby, elevator bay, elevator cabs, security lobby, security desk, courtyard, and parking garage will all be updated with new designs and finishes. The design of the new lobby will feature lighter colors and reflective surfaces to brighten-up the existing dark space.
Keeping the existing floor tile provided, for budget reasons, was a challenge in creating a cohesive design. Wood elements and new lighting were strategically incorporated to balance the warm floor tile color with the new contemporary design.
The existing courtyard was a blighted area neglected by building tenants. Furniture was limited and the space was dominated by heavy, angular planter beds. Our approach to revitalize this communal area was to create a spatially open program, incorporate local art, and refresh the space with new landscaping.
Located on the southern border of the courtyard sits the parking garage. We designed a colorful installation that would feature an assortment of different vegetative densities along with a colorful art piece that would be painted by a local artist. The installation will cover the existing bland garage wall and provide a colorful atmosphere to the new courtyard.
