Application:
Constructed in 1891, Carnegie Hall is the most famous concert venue in the United States. The five story building houses three concert halls, including the 2,804 seat Stern Auditorium. Blocks away from Central Park, Carnegie Hall hosts concerts by the world’s finest orchestras, stellar singers and recitalists, legendary ensembles, and more. Renovations to the lobby and elevator cabs were conducted from 2010 – 2013 to provide the venue with a more stylish, modern ambiance.

Function:
To match the elegance of Carnegie Hall and the events held there, IU + Biblowicz Architects chose burnished aluminum panels in Cambridge’s Sawgrass mesh pattern to add a refined and resilient interior to this refurbished masterpiece. Depending on elevator location, the mesh is either complemented with brass strips and railings or framed within oxidized bronze trim.

Benefit:
Cambridge’s metal mesh is manufactured from recycled materials and creates a lower environmental impact than other types of metal mesh. The tightly weaved pattern protects elevator cabs from heavy traffic by patrons and leaves them virtually maintenance free.
