Jesse Harris, "Highways"
Located between Madison Square, Union Square and Washington Square Park, 90 Fifth Avenue epitomizes the integration of modern and classic spaces. MdeAS has highlighted the elegance of the turn-of-the-century building with the renovation of the lobby. The white plaster walls and ceiling of the lobby, as well as its unique showcase and reception desk cultivate the atmosphere of a contemporary gallery. MdeAS designed a rooftop terrace that functions to continue and enhance the presence of the urban outdoor spaces surrounding the area. The synthesis of landscape, paving and furniture offers a unique and beautiful space for outdoor gatherings and tenant programming amidst the Chelsea skyline.
