Inside the Lenox Hotel in Boston, MA, the Azure Bar is a bolt of light, transforming a rather sleepy dinning room into a hip, sophisticated and active environment. Inserted carefully into an existing space with a specific material palette, the design for a new bar picks up on the blue glass and dark wood accents found in the room, while simultaneously introducing something new and unexpected.
The new bar is a continuous, glowing, wrap-around element, which serves as both a formal and social anchor for the space, and suggests the fluidity of motion, liquor and conversation that takes place here. A new host station at the entry was also part of this project. This element employs the same materials to more gracefully receive diners into the room.
