Renovation of a well-established Midtown bar and outdoor terrace atop a luxury hotel in Manhattan.

Services included interior architectural design, exterior design of outdoor roof surface, and selection of all furniture, lighting, finishes and custom design of bar millwork, glass and tables.

Project challenges included creating an updated environment to attract a new generation of New York socialites while maintaining the appeal of established clientele. Inside the glass enclosed rooftop space, the bar was treated like a glowing jewel in a glass box. A bi-level asymmetrical handmade glass counter was created which incorporated LED lighting to change color adding a sense of drama and variety for the patrons.
