444 5th Avenue Lobby
The 444 lobby renovation provided a new identity and arrival for a previously outdated and minimal office lobby. The project involved expanding the existing footprint by two meters and opening up the main floor lobby to a grander two-storey volume to give the office tower renewed presence in the Calgary streetscape. The design refreshes the elevator lobbies and warms up the space with contemporary finishes that reflect the buildings massing. The renovation extends to the +15 network to enhance and clearly organize a once convoluted circulation system. The resulting design gives the office a significant new and noticeable front door and creates a significant enhancement to the overall +15 network in the City of Calgary.
