The tiny cabs were redone 15-20 years ago incorporating heavy wood finishes. Over the years the repairs could not be sustained. In the last year or so, the building had experienced numerous outages that inconvenienced shareholders and the building staff. Coupled with new city regulation the Building recognized that a total overhaul was necessary.
Our goal was to design contemporary elevator cabs that drew inspiration form the lobby, maximized the space while remaining durable.
We created cabs that felt larger and took advantage of new full height porcelain materials, matching the marble in the lobby. The panels are incased in bronze detailing that are durable and easy to maintain.
