An intriguing interplay of light and dark sets the scene, where angular white frames seem to float away from the façade. Two centrally connected wings form The Branch’s 8-storeys, creating vast North and South-facing open spaces that capture and hold hours of daylight. The entrance, a decisive break in the architectural pattern, identifies itself and a host of street-level retail with a glowing canopy. Across the entryway lies the utterly unclassifiable lobby.
Whether you’re getting back from work or an eight-hour bike ride, coming home will always be an arrival.Go in.
The Lobby When you enter the hotel-style Lobby you enter another world. Double and triple height ceilings soar above a daylight-drenched architectural marvel, where panoramic glass offers views and access to the lush courtyard, and encircles the Uber Lounge, Shared Workspace and 24hr Concierge. At the far end of the Lobby, an oversized fireplace anchors and warms the room, creating a natural gathering space.
The Lobby also features free-flowing marble surfaces and contrasting concrete columns for and effect that’s both bespoke and industrial. Settle into a quiet space to work or mingle with your neighbours while you wait for a ride. The Lobby is many things, but prescriptive isn’t one of them.
