Details ⌵

Home to the headquarters of several major corporations, this lobby needed to foster a refined first impression. By expanding the lobby and refocusing the existing space, MdeAS crafted a room with a strong impression. Drawing from an elegant material palette of white marble with gray veining and backlit glass accents, the lobby proudly exhibits a unique and dignified sense of space. Its simple geometry and fluid design move one's experience as seamlessly from the lobby into the courtyard as it does into the building's elevator cabs, which proudly feature National's hallmark, expert craftsmanship. Like the lobby, backlit panels beckon the calm of shoji sliding doors, as a serious command of the space's overhead lighting compliments the white marble floors and awakens the subtle wood paneling. Working together again, MdeAS and National have crafted together a truly graceful system and space.
