301 East 78th Street
Lennox House is an impressive structure from the exterior. The massing is elegant, and the street façades are nicely detailed—it's the interior that fell apart. It was dark, dated and the materials and systems needed to be upgraded desperately.
After many years of good management which provided the financial reserve for our client to re-claim a small commercial space. We were hired to combine this space with their lobby in a full gut renovation.
We took this opportunity to open the lobby to daylight; providing a welcoming view of the concierge and reorganizing service areas for increased efficiency. The surrounding transitional design vocabulary incorporates a classically-modern use of materials; including structural piers clad in a green Costa Esmeralda marble, travertine flooring, and cherry panelling.
