The Churchill Condominiums
One Custom Elevator Cab
Partners: Urban Elevator, Interface Planning, Inc.
Working with Interface Planning, Inc. and Urban Elevator, G&R was commissioned to provide one complete custom cab at The Churchill, a 10-story building constructed in 1924.
This traditional #GR704 wall design unveils the merging of three classic materials—wood, bronze, and stone—and complement the upscale lobby of this fashionable condominium community.
The Upper wall panels, faced with Plain-sliced Mahogany, are crafted with the “frame and panel” technique. This construction method lends itself to various forms of visual impact, from subtle to bold. Here, an understated change in the panel frames’ grain direction provides a nice finishing touch.
Contrasting Travertine lower wall panels and Medium Oxidized Bronze provide a “Roman Classic” feel, softened by the luminance of indirect light and a white painted ceiling. Linear LED light fixtures have been installed at the perimeter edges and are concealed from view by the decorative Trough Moldings.
Bar-style Handrails, brackets, and metal panels (door cladding, fronts) are composed of Medium Oxidized Bronze #4 (satin finish).
