Foreign Mission Offices to the United Nations

New York, NY

RBSD was called upon to completely renovate a 16,000-square-foot Consulate and give the space a new personality.  The new space would be modern to represent the country’s advancements, while paying tribute to its heritage.

The existing office was closed off and compartmentalized before RBSD redesigned the space to provide an abundance of natural light and an overall, a more welcoming appearance.  A double height atrium effect was created at the entrance and features an intricate inlayed stone floor.  RBSD’s design utilizes contrast through the use of light and dark, and continuity of space through transparency and opacity.  Colors were chosen with meaning and appreciation for the importance of the country’s symbols.
