The 150 Coolidge Ave. project consisted of an update to the building cladding as well as the addition of a new modernized entry lobby. Working closely with the client, the final design was one that gave a modern downtown feel to a rather outdated looking building. By pulling a new glass entry lobby toward the street and wrapping it with brushed aluminum Alucobond and a teak inlaid ceiling; attention is drawn to the inviting entry. A dark grey Alucobond rain screen is also carried across the upper band of the building to help reinvigorate the tired looking concrete panels they cover. Landscaping was designed with utmost care, not only in terms of approach, but to provide an outdoor seating and work area for the building tenants as well.
