the lobby’s work in progress…

In the early days of Leftbank’s creation, while its vision and design were still largely shapes in the fog, an architectural idea emerged in the lobby. Without question, the textures, artifacts and epic spaces of the building inspired a thousand ideas at that time… but this one I held particularly dear. I’m truly excited to say Leftbank has at long last commissioned me to execute it. Passing though the lobby over the next few weeks you’ll see the process unfold – don’t hesitate to say hi.

In the meantime, here are a few shots from the effort:

a great way to casually and organically discover more about Leftbank is to check out the new Points of Interests signs hanging around the building.

these signs were developed by Leftbank’s own andy powell of gallopowell studio to highlight several particularly sign-worthy spots around the building. they will most likely become a permanent installation (after tweaks to make them more permanent).

for guidance, you can go to the Directional Signage – the floor plan signs that are mounted on pieces of wood (from the Leftbank renovation!) and hanging in front of the tile walls on each floor (see pic above). the Points of Interest are marked by asterisks on these signs.

and, if you want more of the jazz history of the building, check this out.

enjoy the tour!
