Asked to provide interior design and furniture planning for the public spaces of a new 170 unit condominium development in Prospect Lefferts Garden by The Hudson Companies with the base building designed by Jonathan Kirschenfeld Architect, we explored ways to bring the park into the building which is located three blocks east of Prospect Park.
A green and grey tile mosaic blurs the edge between wall and floor and creates a color splash at the rear of the lobby that draws you in when you enter the building and guides you towards the mailroom and elevator core. The green is expressed on each floor in the elevator lobby as you travel up the eight stories, and again in the public lounge, situated on the eighth floor.
Apart from the tile mosaic, the spaces are left sparse and simple, with modern furniture that warms up the spaces with the introduction of walnut wood elements. All lighting is LED, with a custom twenty three count Plumen bulb string chandelier above the seating area in the lobby, which is visible from the street and frames the windows of the first floor windows at night.
The building is currently in construction, and is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2017.
