As part of 101 Central Park West's lobby renovation the Board of Directors recognized that the existing podium style desk was poorly placed, along to one of the elevator banks and extremely undersized for the needs of the building.
We were asked to provide a new desk, sized for all the building's security, elevator and package needs while not compromising the lobby's style or demanding proportions.
We developed a desk that reads like movable furniture and less like a built in desk. It is located and sized so that the concierge has expansive visibility while not congesting the circulation through the lobby. Traditional finishes drawing from the building itself were incorporated to ensure it is in keeping with the spirit of the building.
