The Challenge: Lobby Interior Design 

Commercial spaces often need a unique approach to design, especially when it’s for showbusiness. That’s why the client approached one of the top commercial interior design firms in the US. They needed a comprehensive makeover to make an old theatre lobby relevant in contemporary design. For this project, the designer had to:

  • Update flooring for a high-end but contemporary look
  • Change the cobalt blue lobby ceiling design to something sophisticated
  • Include striking lighting and lobby decoration to maximize light and the wow-factor
  • Ensure the final design is timeless and can last for decades

These spaces feature a modern-contemporary style that makes the best of the striking architecture. Some of the examples include lobby wall design with loads of texture but minimal color use. Overall, they feel bright, edgy, and full of natural elements as the wood takes center stage.

A great half-moon counter greets guests as they enter the theatre foyer. Its light wood stands out from the classic gray lobby interior design. Not only a wonderful contrast to the color scheme, but also a vivid center of the room. Here visitors will check in and book their seats or order a beverage before setting off to watch a show.

The counter has two different counter heights, the highest being the middle with lower sections flanking it – it creates a winged appearance while also being practical. The lower counters are ideal for serving drinks and snacks. The middle counter, on the other hand, provides surface space to show beautiful lobby decorations, like orchids. It also ensures a tidy look as all the provisions are stowed away from direct eyesight.  

Lobby Ceiling Design

The renovated lobby truly makes the most of the striking ceiling design. Before the ceiling was a bold blue – not a typically timeless hue – but now, the warm white displays the structural elegance at its finest. A slanted ceiling leads from the reception counter to just before the entrance, giving way to impressive high domes. This space includes arched chandeliers as well as striking bronze and black sconces.

Downlights further enhance the architectural lines. They highlight slanted surfaces and let corners carry more shadow to create a striking focal point. The effect is dramatic as it emphasizes the shapes of the intricate lobby ceiling design. It runs to a half-moon frame just above the reception counter, echoing its shape. This slightly curved structure also puts the spotlight on this area.

The contemporary lobby design is timeless refinement at its best. It features layered light, making the room feel light and bright. But it also has plenty of contrast and textures to create a visually intriguing space. Not only does lighting work to maximize high- and low-light, but the white walls and dark décor also increase contrast.

White pillars, for instance, feature black round countertops. They make the ideal spot to stop and enjoy a drink while waiting for the show doors to open. These counters also have orchids in bronze planters as lobby decoration. They are tasteful and complement the white, bronze, and black palette of the interior.

Charcoal carpet and dark gray tiles cover the entrance floor as well as the staircase. Although there are many dark elements to the design, it feels light owing to lighting and huge mirrors as part of the lobby wall design. Lastly, velvet benches and thriving pot plants give the final rounding touches to the lobby interior.
