A redesign project at Lincoln Center has introduced dramatic changes and a new dining experience.
The project, which has transformed one of the New York City''s cultural landmarks, includes a new dining space called at65, which opened two days after the new Alice Tully Hall was inaugurated on February 22.
The restaurant is located in the hall''s grand foyer and is wrapped by a multi-story glass curtain wall offering patrons expansive views of Broadway and 65th Street. It is dominated by a distinctive 70-foot bar made of Azul Ataija limestone, and includes plush, lounge-style seating in addition to tables and chairs.
Lincoln Center president Reynold Levy says that this is part of a project to transform the cultural complex into "a more welcoming, more accessible place to enjoy the performing arts."
Alice Tully Hall was originally completed in 1969 as the last theater in the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts complex. It serves as home of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and others. Its newly redesigned version is the first significant component of the transformation of Lincoln Center''s 16-acre urban campus.
The new concert hall was designed by architects from Diller Scofidio + Renfro in association with FX Fowle Studio.
