SAA initially designed the public areas of this building and have recently re-branded the building. The lobby has been conceived as a “lobby / art space”. The primarily white box with very large video display walls on east and west elevations can be programmed by artist. Presently the work has a soft changing color wave with tracking devices that engage and display the movement anyone entering the lobby.
Additionally we designed a large area for various uses for the tenants which include child play areas, gaming, private screening, and bar reading areas. We developed a unique system of internally lighted walls that create translucent types of interaction between spaces and unify the overall theme. The effect is a very colorful, young, and activated.
