Montroy Andersen DeMarco completed the construction of a pre-built office space on the 21s floor of 180 Madison Avenue in Manhattan. The new pre-built office houses a 525 SF kitchen and lounge area with upscale fixtures and furnishings. It has a relaxed, residential feeling to it, ideal for formal and informal conferences. It is also a space where colleagues can relax and collaborate on new ideas. The space can also be used to host events after hours. The 350-sq.-ft. conference room features glazed walls of ¼-in. tempered glass so that it feels open to the rest of the office space and fits in with the open design concept. The office houses its own passenger elevator lobby and a separate freight elevator bank. Interior finishes include polished concrete floors with clear acrylic seal, exposed concrete ceiling slabs, and exposed steel columns. The steel elements all have received level five fire protection with spray-on intumescent paint. The I-beam steel columns were stripped of concrete for aesthetic reasons and to provide additional floor plate space. To increase the ceiling height, MADGI opted for flat oval ductwork, which allows for additional head room in comparison to square or rectangular ducts. Both the plumbing and ductwork were painted white to make them less noticeable. The kitchen space includes two large refrigerators, both Energy Star certified, and features two water lines for coffee makers. The space was fitted with custom-made modern cabinetry finished in ash grey/brown laminate veneer. A glass Viscaya backsplash tile in gloss finish by Nemo Tile is installed behind a sink. One of the lounge area walls was painted in a dark chalkboard finish by IdeaPaint. The lounge features three decorative pendant lighting fixtures. MADGI outfitted the remainder of the space with linear LED lighting fixtures by National Lighting. The new lighting system includes daylight sensors and both automatic and manual dimming controls for optimal energy efficiency.
