The design for the renovation of the exterior and interior public access spaces of this notable office building addresses both the inherent deficiencies of the original conditions as well as its outdated image.
Original lobby finishes, including terrazzo and travertine, were renovated and out-of-character alterations were removed. The elevator lobbies, including elevator cabs, were fully renovated with new signage introduced. At the service areas, travertine walls were replaced with dark bronze metal paneling in order to mute their presence and establish visual coherence within the sprawling space.
