731 Lexington Place l Bloomberg Building Atrium

As the Architect of Record, Adamson provided design development and contract documentation services for the atrium/lobby spaces, the exterior curtain wall, storefronts and canopies for the Bloomberg Building at 731 Lexington. Designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates/SLCE Architects, the Bloomberg Atrium features a dynamic entry lobby sequence that connects the high- and low-rise portions of the site. This elliptically-shaped, glass-enclosed, landscaped forecourt acts as a mid-block focal point for the overall development. Entrances to the prestigious Bloomberg offices and the condominium tower radiate from the entry forecourt. Additional retail storefronts and restaurants are located at street level. The detailed design of the lobby and atrium spaces involves the resolution of sophisticated geometries including sloped planes, elliptical surfaces, horizontal skylights and canopies, and processional sequences.
