Description

Beyond their role of reception area, lobbies and waiting rooms present an opportunity for designers to create a dynamic space that reinforces a company's brand and personality. This gloriously illustrated volume covers 45 projects, divided into three categories:

  • Commercial (hotels, day spas, sports centers, senior centers, assisted living facilities)
  • Public (museums, schools, government buildings)
  • Corporate (offices, medical clinics)
  • Each project contains detailed architectural plans. The book also contains a directory of architects.
