A blog dedicated towards architectural refinement of buildings and environments in which we live, work, and play. Chiefly this is brought about by the author with finish carpentry at heart, and many other disciplines radiating or spinning off from it.

Gallery Space Expansion Ideas (continued)

east part of main lobby with entrance vestibule

This is what some of main lobby space of the Historic Federal Building looks like. The above depicts the entrance with its vestibule. These are taken from photos I took a couple of years ago around the winter holidays.

North east part of main lobby

Above, a look west towards the elevator and north vestibule with a great source of natural north light coming in through the arched tops of the windows.

A sample of one of the post office box walls. There are about 2,500 of these. I had thought at one time that auctioning these off as curio items might fund some of the renovation. Behind them is a large sorting room with more high ceilings and giant heating and cooling ducts. At one time the space was considered very favorable for an upscale restaurant. I think the end reason it didn't happen was the problem of parking space.

These would be in reference to the previous entry here a while back,
