After fifty years of patchwork renovations in the garage lobbies, this 400 unit ocean front complex located in the of the resort town of Sea Isle City, NJ decided it was time to update the lobby to the aesthetic level expected from a multi-million dollar property. MDG’s goal was to create an arrival experience- both in the sense of “arriving” to a relaxing location as well as the idea that you have “arrived” in life. To create the upscale feel, MDG choose multi- surface applications of materials that create a rich atmosphere but also provide practical functions as the garage lobbies get never ending use and flood during severe winter storms. By creating dedicated paths to the elevators, acknowledging signage as a sense of “arrival”, and focusing on durable materials that with withstand carts, beach chairs, and all the accoutrements of shore living, MDG created a space that will age another 50 years with style.
MDG provided space planning services, specification selections and detailing, electrical specification and detailing as well as 3D modeling and presentations for the board to present to the Home Owners Association.
