New York Apartment Lobby

Chicago

Located on North Lakeshore Drive, this high-rise building lobby drew inspiration from the undulating edge of Lake Michigan. The tri-color brick exterior was miniaturized and brought into the interior. This series of brick vaults create a transition from the entry drive to the lobby. A serpentine water fetcher with a series of stainless steel cables supporting 1" stainless weights undulate as the water flows past to mark the entry to the elevator lobby. The dramatic room is designed as a social space, complete with a concierge, security, mail room, tables and chairs and a grand piano for morning coffee or Friday evening events.
