PROGRAM :
Renovation of an office building


COMPLETION DATE :
2005

This lobby renovation of a midtown Manhattan office building got rid of a dark, narrow and unwelcoming entry and created a spacious first floor. Cutting through the thick masonry wall and replacing it with a striking glass panel permitted natural light while avoiding any existing structure. Shallow entrance vestibules replaced deep ones, increasing the interior space area. Elements of an earlier postmodern renovations were incorporated into a language of contemporary forms, materials and composition.
