520 Madison Avenue

New York, NY

Tishman Speyer 2008


Entirely embraced in Roman Travertine, the lobby of 520 Madison Avenue contains a single, warm material to create an intimate feel. To complement this space, the metal enframement was refinished from a bright polished, golden finish to a rich dark statuary work throughout the interior and exterior.

Designed as a viewing platform for the owner’s extensive art collection, rotating, vibrant works accent the main body and corridors of the lobby.  A striking security desk composed of a rich Sarancolin Marble punctuates the space.
