The General Motors Building at 767 Fifth Avenue is one of the city’s most prized commercial highrises. To continue providing their tenant the highest level of service and comfort, Boston Properties allotted the entire second floor of the structure to be given over to an amenity suite.

Split into three primary uses—fitness/wellness, food and beverage, and conferencing—a common architectural language and material palette links the entire suite together while providing different uses.

The building, whose facade and lobby are clad in honed white marble in varying geometric forms, is the central inspiration for the amenity’s interior. The amenity employs this tone-on-tone methodology but in a warmer, more textured approach using travertine and lime-wash paint.

The result is a softer, more enveloping interior whose use of materiality and lighting sets a tone that feels calm in the fast-paced energy of Midtown.
