NHR Lobby

NHR Lobby

868 SQ FT | Harlem

The existing lobby conditions at this corporate headquarters were lacking in coherence, with conflicting geometries from previous renovations, cluttered wiring and pipes, plus a general lack of natural light. With a comprehensive re-skinning of almost every surface, the hall was transformed into a sleek contemporary showpiece for the client. The focal point of the project is a folding white oak waterfall with integrated LED strip lighting, which rises up from the stair penetration and vaults across the ceiling of the second floor. On the exterior, a backlit side-light clad in perforated steel panels augments a custom oversize entrance door. This transitions to the vestibule clad in black cocoa mat and steel-gray accent paint. At the street level lights are embedded in the porcelain floor tile and proceed to wrap up the wall and around the ceiling, creating a tunnel effect. The project also includes a number of high-end details including baseboard reveals, step lights, angular white-oak stair treads, and a new glass transom.
