Preferring to invest allocated resources in restoration of the building rather than in a resplendent private office, he agreed with our suggestion that the hybrid 47th floor remain essentially in its raw state thereby symbolizing the act of construction in which he engages. Architecturally the floor possessed inexplicable asymmetrical fenestration with an alley-like approach corridor. To create essentially the same elegance of form and proportion found in its deco entry lobby, we elected to re-proportion the space by constructing drywall pilasters between each window capped at the bottom of the exposed concrete beams. The concrete ceiling was exposed in its raw state. The major focal point within the space is a series of center pivot electrical doors screening the office proper from the secretary/waiting area.
