This was a nice little exercise in preservation. Working with a limited budget, the client wanted to upgrade the lobby of a hundred year old UWS building. Retaining as much as possible, we created a curved niche for larger mailboxes, upgraded the lighting, developed a palette of paint colors to highlight existing detail, upgraded the entry and just all around made the place nicer. It's still in process, but we're getting there.
Check out the before and after shots.
