Leeser Architecture has just put the finishing touches on the super cool south lobby of the incredible new West Side development, the Mercedes House. The 2,500 square foot space will be the gateway to 29 stories of luxury living developed by Two Trees Management and designed by Ten Arquitectos. With a fantastically patterned terrazzo floor, LED lights, and digital displays, this entryway is an experience for the senses. The giant space is dynamically angled into sections that make it no ordinary residential lobby.
Two lines of color-changing LED lights glow along the ceiling and illuminate wall panels throughout the hallways, giving a warm and welcoming vibe at any hour of the day. Bands of reflective glass accentuate the dramatic slanted ceiling, and panoramic digital artwork behind the reception desk serves as a soothing juxtaposition to the swirling floor pattern. Mailboxes and computer screens are located in a central kiosk serving as an information hub right at the building’s glass door entrance.
Leeser’s work is far from finished however. With a sister lobby, 30,000 square foot fitness center, lounge, spa, and iconic New York roof deck in their future plans, this looks like only the beginning.
