DII was awarded this commission out of multiple design firms. A large condo complex needed a complete overhaul of their two lobbies. The board had a few requirements, but were very open throughout the design process. They needed extremely functional spaces & low maintenance materials. The board also request as much natural light & added led lighting as possible. DII dove into the design phases and set up many meetings along the way w/ the board members.
The final designs accomplished the boards wants & needs, while injecting crisp, bright new spaces that feel brighter & bigger than they actually are. We introduced 2 main materials being fiber cement slats & high-end porcelain tile. Subtle led lighting is seen in multiple spots in the lobbies. A continuous curved wall to ceiling junction makes the space feel tall but comfortable. The entire end wall mirror doubles the room spatially. A final design thread was added in the ceiling, coming in the form of 1/2" crystallin fractures that correspond to circulation patterns & subtly direct visitors & owners.
