712 Fifth Avenue Retail Named Finalist in NYCxDesign Awards

The KPF-designed project is shortlisted in the Commercial Lobby category of the annual awards.

712 Fifth Avenue’s renovated retail space celebrates subtle luxury through its material palette and atrium expansion. The guiding principle of the retail renovation was to celebrate the intricate design of the René Lalique windows, detailed with Art Nouveau flowers created by the renowned glass artist. As the designer of the original tower completed in 1990, KPF was reengaged by Paramount Group to update the retail spaces and adjacent lobby. The updated design retains some of the original catwalks, improves the reach of natural light, and allows for unobstructed views from the interior ground level.

The NYCxDesign Awards, presented by Interior Design, is an annual, week-long celebration that recognizes outstanding design products and projects. This year’s winners were announced at the festival’s live ceremony on May 20.
