A Timeless Entrance 

Looking to revive 270 Madison’s street presence, ABS Partners selected Spectorgroup to create a lobby that could withstand the test of time. The building, originally constructed in the 1920’s, was renovated multiple times throughout the years resulting in a dated accumulation of materials and conflicting aesthetics.

Modern Simplicity

Spectorgroup introduced a simple, refined palette of terrazzo, limestone, oxidized brass details, marble, and wood to complement the existing architecture and fa├žade of the building. The original mezzanine was removed to highlight the double-height ceilings.

Textures and Patterns

A linear wood ceiling serves as a directional guide, leading your sight upwards to the statement lighting fixture that is a playful twist on the orthogonal lines found throughout the space, and forwards to the reception desk and elevators. The patterns created with the oxidized brass and limestone wall panels add dimension and movement. A bold marble reception desk welcomes guests and acts as a contrasting sculptural element within the space.
