The Lyric Centre lobby is strikingly white and every surface gleams to polished perfection.

A Steinway & Sons grand piano hosts daily piano concerts in the lobby for the tenants and guests.

Floor to ceiling windows let in abundant natural light. A structural steel accent piece displays the building’s name as well as a unique light fixture. The supporting frame was installed so that the exposed steel seems to float off the wall. The back lights were installed as designed but upon review, determined to not quite meet the desired effect – they were then removed and reinstalled in a tightly packed layout to align with building graphics and achieve the final effect. The polished tile utilized on floors and walls is an ultra-thin product manufactured in Italy. The project schedule was modified when the initial tile delivery arrived. Our client team decided to change from the originally specified matte finish to a polished tile to achieve their design goals for the space. O’Donnell/Snider worked with manufactures, suppliers and installers to reduce the schedule impact of this reselection of Italian tile. We had several meetings with the owner prior to the tile installation to ensure that the tile pattern would be placed precisely as desired. The tile is a man-made product with a series of different patterns of veining, requiring strategic placement. We also remodeled the nine elevators to have new interiors matching the lobby. The building remained open and operational throughout construction. This required us to phase the project, completing only select portions of the lobby within each phase. Phase One encompassed work on Lobby walls. We then revealed the Phase One surfaces and moved into Phase Two: the floors.
