Commercial Façade and Interior Design renovation. 1900 Market is an eight story, 30 year old office building, located at a prime central business district location in Philadelphia. Currently occupied by a premier law firm, this design sought to renovate the interior private offices, the ground floor public areas and refresh the façade in a phased format to allow for the tenant to remain during construction.
The goal was to create a contemporary façade with a new entry lobby element to provide a sophisticated image for the repositioned building. Wrapping the existing building in a glass veil changes the proportion of the horizontal façade and lightens the volume above the ground floor retail. The new elliptical entry volume is inserted on the corner facing city hall and infill’s the previous negative space with a light filled lantern announcing its presence to the larger city beyond.
