New Desk

Given their budgetary concerns, this Board opted for a limited renovation of this spacious through block Lobby, maintaining existing marble walls and floors, but seeking improvements that would transform their residents experience. Hence a new concierge desk.

We were tasked to design a new desk, sized for all the building's security, elevator and package needs while keeping it within the same language of the lobby that received minor cosmetic changes.

We developed a desk that niched into the wall and faced directly across from the entry giving clear visibility for the staff. A new wood panelled wall with a stone and metal frame enhanced the lobby, expanding the existing visual language.
