The elegance and grace of the lobby renovation are the result of a close collaboration with Maria Suri, our Senior Associate Principal, and the Board.  Their determination and creativity made this lobby a showcase. Although the space is not large, we were able to create an environment that provides an expansive, open feeling.  This was achieved by raising the ceilings and using a combination of subtle and dramatic lighting.  The anigre wood and limestone create a visual warmth and the curved wall provides a graceful flow as one is led through the lobby.  In addition the curve of the wall houses the mailroom area. The detailing is crisp, the finishes sparkle and the space is dynamic.
