Bringing the scale down to human proportions.
White metal canopy
A white metal canopy was added to the exterior to define the relocated entrances off the north and east sides, while also bringing the scale down to human proportions. A new seating area at the corner “floats” within a landscape planting bed to provide a street-oriented presence and highlight the activity in the building.
The interior of the lobby space has been transformed with a timeless aesthetic in mind. The neutral colour palette continues from the main floor, mezzanine, and concourse, visually connecting each space. The light colours, thin lines, and contrasting materials are a stark contrast to the previous lobby design.
The basement level has become an open and bright amenity space for the building tenants with a series of meeting rooms, breakout spaces, kitchen, games area and lounge.
