This project is an enhancement and update to the shared amenity spaces of a 1960’s multi-residential rental building to add value, simplify maintenance and promote user health and well-being.

Inspired by the original 60’s qualities of the building, materials and clean restrained lines were used to create a contemporary yet classic design ambience.
