Unique Custom Ceiling Wins Award
The Milford Plaza Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Manhattan and their renovation plans involved a complete redesign, relocation and expansion of the main multiple level lobby area. The sloped and curved ceiling plane was completed by combining engineered panels of solid hardwood blades skewed both horizontally and vertically which interwove when installed. The intentional random look wood ceiling baffle concept was developed by Gabellini Sheppard Architects of New York. Engineering and manufacturing of the baffle ceiling panels was by Architectural Components Group, Inc. of Marshfield, MO. Ceiling installation was completed by National Acoustics of New York.
