The project consists of the renovation of corridors and bathroom areas on the hotel floors of the large YMCA facility at 5 West 63rd Street in Manhattan, which is a Landmark registered with the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. With a limited budget and an extremely tight time frame, our office was asked to design a major upgrade of finishes and lighting. We had many meetings with YMCA personnel pinning down details, and we researched all proposed materials to make surenothing had a long lead time. The heart of the scheme is a brightly colored wire trough system that runs down the corridors and organizes mulitple bundles of wiring related to both power and communications. The YMCA has an international clientele and the face of the trough system will be decorated with the names of all the countries of the world in bold graphics. We also re-did the lighting scheme utilizing state of the art LED fixtures and we gave elevator core areas a vibrant color treatment. Construction is currently being completed and the project came in under budget.
