A dramatic volumetric exploration, The Interlock Lobby is the public-facing circulation hub strategically placed at this large, mixed-use development’s ground plane. The two-story space is located at the crossroads of a hotel and multiple retail and office tenants. The Lobby was envisioned as a monolithic charred wood block, with spaces carved into it revealing an underlying layer of rich, warm wood. These spaces signify either circulation routes or social interaction areas. Branching out further are thin concrete bridges connecting people to and from other areas, which makes this lobby the very heart of the development.
