This 1962 cooperative's spacious lobby was denied by a clogged entry vestibule, unchanged since the building was constructed and was functionally disastrous.
We worked closely with the Board to transform their entrance and lobby to enhance their contemporary space in keeping with the period and style of the building.
We removed the vestibule and designed a new concierge station to the north, allowing the Icarus Fountain that is on axis with the entry to re-establish its prominence. We matched the existing finishes, restored those that remained, and provided a new AC system. This transformation was in conjunction with a new storefront and cantilevered bronze canopy.
