Refreshing this exquisite early 20th century lobby is an object lesson in restraint. The period architectural metal, stone, and plaster were handsome, but the lighting and ambiance needed improvements. Through thoughtful and cost-conscious interventions, AJA repositioned the building by subtly enhancing its features – elevating the original architectural elements with new decorative painting, mosaics, energy-efficient LED lighting and security desk. The result highlights the building’s historic character and emphasizes light and openness.
