677 FIFTH AVENUE LOBBY
 
Facade alterations and interior renovation to a commercial lobby at a prime midtown fifth avenue address. Investigation revealed that the low-ceilinged lobby and entrance had originally been much higher. Removing dropped ceilings exposed taller spaces and original moldings but also exposed sprinkler pipes. So a system of suspended translucent panels with curved aluminum fins was devised to obscure the pipes while leaving the moldings visible.

On the exterior, the diminutive entrance opening was enlarged to match the proportions of the contiguous storefronts. An airfoil shaped canopy contains recessed lighting and supports the perforated stainless steel 677. The renovated elevator cabs include ceilings of fiberoptic pinpoint lights protruding through copper mesh.
