Elegant entry and retail awnings are used to distinguish an office building opposite the Metropolitan Life building on Manhattan’s 23rd Street. The refined entry and expanded ground floor store fronts with unifying awnings attract upscale tenancy. The major entry on 23rd Street was highlighted and identified with a new canopy and illuminated stainless steel identity signature. The lobby was redesigned to create a modern and inviting image through more efficient circulation. A strong soffit and a brightly lit barrel vault form a counterpoint to the black granite flooring and travertine stone wall panel which are hung between columns. A new security desk was positioned to facilitate circulation and rest points near the elevator.
