The dramatic lobby space contracts and opens up, similar to the landscape of the Poconos. A staircase in the middle is a sculptural element, like a mountain, and select colors red and blue add to the modern appearance. Lighting is unobtrusive, and the wood and acrylic panels are a metaphor for the natural landscape.
The visual connection with the outdoor courtyard helps enliven a waiting area, where the partitions mimic the irregular patterns of nature. The courtyard is landscaped with native vegetation, boulders, and winding paths.
