The Williams Lobby Art
Brooklyn, New York
The Williams is an apartment building located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. MA was responsible for the architectural design, interior design, and art selection services within the building's lobby. While the architectural and interior designs balance the contemporary and historic influences of the evolving neighborhood, the lobby artwork by Matthias van Arkel and Peter Calvin serves as a bold and eclectic counterpoint. In addition, MA designed a custom dividing wall behind the reception desk using dark green copper panels that were salvaged from the bakery that originally occupied the site to provide an artistic representation and connection to its industrial heritage.
