The lobby redesign took a minimalist approach to all spatial surfaces except one: the ceiling. The bounding walls and flooring provide a frame to hold a dynamic curved ceiling spanning the lobby from 42nd through 43rd Streets.

The understated design approach for the renovated lobby—a direct response to the visual chaos of Times Square—features simple materials with a dynamic, highly sculptural ceiling. A cascading diamond pattern with several layers of texture activates the ceiling and welcomes guests.

The team used computational design tools to create the ceiling’s singular double-curved surface, which is made up of a diagrid system of curving Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) panels. Micro-design iterations within each panel add depth at key locations in the ceiling.
