On the east side of the porch, a new amenity is programmed; a cafe is added with bi-folding doors that open up to its own patio. On the west side of the porch, there is an indoor gym space with bi-folding doors to an open deck.
Inside the new main lobby, a new public conference room 'the jewel box' acts as a shared amenity between the tenants. Its sides are made of fritted glass, green cable, and a seating area above that looks back out onto the park. Adjacent to the room is a ceremonial stair that takes you up to the new mezzanine level and second-floor tenant spaces. The back wall of the lobby is wrapped in a wool felt accent panel that helps acoustically and adds a splash of color. The building will be stripped away from all old partitions, insulation, and paint.
Two new private patio spaces located on the northeast and southeast corners of the building are defined by vertical and horizontal stainless steel cables, which would host the project's 'vertical gardens.' The ultimate goal of the vertical garden is to shield these patios from the parking lot and to create a shaded place for the tenants to enjoy the inside out relationship with the landscape, creating meditative green spaces.
