Shorenstein Properties needed a means to re-direct traffic from the elevator bank to their concierge desk. The lobby also needed a new concierge desk and waiting area. Gertler & Wente created bamboo wood clad dividers that include backlit glass strips and stainless steel edging that holds wheat grass plants. The new travertine desk also features backlit bioglass – a recycled glass material. The elevator wall on the ground and mezzanine levels and ceiling of the mezzanine were clad in a sandpaper-laminated etched glass. Custom light fixtures were designed for above the desk and seating.
