To complete the transformation of their lobby, the Board deemed it important to renovate the elevators, whose dated pink plastic laminate interiors would have clashed sharply with their newly renovated lobby. We tweaked the simple lobby panel detailing to work within their budget, used high quality wood grain laminate in place of veneer to address maintenance and budgetary concerns and added the same smoky mirrors and creamy faux limestone floors of the Lobby to make the cabs seem larger, an extension of the warmth and elegance of the new anigre paneled Lobby.
