Design Solutions - Fall 2019 - 18

The architectural firm
Robert A.M. Stern Architects,
LLP, (RAMSA) New York, New
York designed the project.
Architectural woodwork
was fabricated by D&L
Wood Products, Inc., an AWI
member firm from Crown
Point, Indiana.
"It's a modern traditional
building with classically
inspired themes interpreted
in a 21st century idiom,"
explains RAMSA's Chris
Lee. "Design was achieved
through intricate detailing,
precisely matching control
samples, and delivering
superb finishes."

Warm Walnut
The primary consideration
for incorporating woodwork
was to create warm and
inviting yet luxurious spaces
that are expertly crafted,
continues Lee. The scope
for D&L was for woodwork
and wall paneling in both
lobbies and amenity spaces
encompassed within
approximately 15,000 square
feet of spaces. "The wood
paneling in the lobbies and
amenity spaces are meant to
give a warm, inviting, clublike feel. Our design relied
on sophisticated detailing
throughout including
sweeping custom profiles,
reveals, and floor-to-ceiling
wood panels," says Lee.

The major architectural
woodwork includes several
rooms and elevations of
bleached, dyed, matched
and sequenced wall panels
through the lobbies and
amenities spaces, which
includes curved wall panels,
curved crown and base, and
metal reveals, explains D&L's
Adam Ligda. "The apartment
and condo lobby front desks
combined high-end wood,
stone, leather and metal
finishes; the mail rooms are
both decorated from floor
to ceiling with matched and
sequenced wood wall panels
and applied trims."

The Kid's Room included
a wall-to-wall, floor to ceiling
custom bookcase, while the
fitness room is adorned with
matching trims and panels
around all the mirrors and
columns. Finally, the Cordial
Room and Billiards Room
were both fitted with fullbuild, high gloss matched
ziricote veneered panels
and lockers. D&L also
supplied and installed all the
architectural wood doors,
to ensure that the finish
and veneer matched the
surrounding millwork.
"One of the biggest
challenges to this job
was to ensure that the
final product matched the
designers' samples," notes
Ligda. "All the Walnut panels
and hardwood had to be
bleached by hand several
times so that the final stain
and color were consistent
and matched across all
elevations. The White Oak
trims and panels in the
apartment fitness room
introduced a pearlized stain
finish, while the Ash veneer
and hardwoods also had
to be bleached by hand to
achieve the consistency
needed. The ziricote veneer
panels used a full-fill
polyurethane finish that was
polished and buffed by hand
to its final high gloss sheen."

Most Noteworthy
"The curving wall behind
the concierge desk in the
condominium lobby is the most
noteworthy," says Lee. "It is one
of the first features you see as
you walk into the condo lobby
and it is a curving wall with trim,
profiles, and wall panels that
all follow the same curve. The
craftsmanship is superb and
design intent was carried out in
a tremendous way."
