Our client was a large building management organisation in New York. We were asked to remodel the lobby of one of their apartment buildings on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The building dates from 1966 and was featured in the film version of Neil Simon’s ‘The Prisoner of Second Avenue’. Our objective was to reinstate the simple modernism of the original space. We also wanted to introduce elements making the most of light in the lobby and so designed a series of precisely detailed white metal elements that modify both artificial and natural light.
Construction was completed in 2016.
