200 East 135th Street
Amenity planning and interior design of a new construction residential building towering roughly 25 stories. The interiors were designed with an open mind to the future development of yet another one of NYC’s beautiful shoreline enclaves. The double height lobby is emphasized through the use of industrial style planter frames lining the upper half of the space. The frames are complimented by tall brick arches and concrete textured stone tiles with moments warmed up through the use of wood details. The combination of industrial style materials along with warm and natural elements acts as the core formula in which the interiors were designed. Gym, café, business center, kids room, lounge/library, party/game room, and screening room are included in the amenities offered to tenants. The business center offers multiple workstations as well as private meeting rooms. Material selections mirror those of the lobby with cool toned vinyl flooring and wall coverings isolating warm wood details to the workstation areas. The kids room touches upon more playful elements through the use of chalkboard paints and the addition of a custom-built slide. Both the library/lounge and party/game room retain similar styles to the rest of the interiors by using similar cool toned stone tile flooring. The walls use similar color tones to emphasize the appearance of material continuation with specific programmatic zones warmed with natural wood finishes. The screening room offers 2 variations in flooring with the main circulation path differing from the vinyl used at the screening and seating areas. The vinyl used at the circulation path continues onto the wall and ceiling to create a division between the zones. The open café sits between the business center and kids room offering tenants the comfort of navigating between these spaces. Wood details distinguish the coffee station from the rest of the space which was designed in a more industrial aesthetic. Located apart from the other amenities, the gym and yoga rooms were designed with functionality in mind with rubber tiles lining the floors of the gym and cocoa-toned vinyl tiles lining those of the yoga room. At the residential levels, the kitchens and bathrooms exude a similar style with cool-toned stone finishes being complimented by wood details at kitchen borders, bathroom vanities and shelves.
