Grand Atrium Renovation and New Entry Experience

Franklin Park Conservatory

A New Front Door to a New Era

The goal of this renovation and addition project was to transform the entry, visitor, and event experience. A new entrance, defined by a transparent, group-friendly foyer, is consolidated on axis with the grand atrium. A new entry lobby uncovers a previously opaque main entrance elevation with views deep into the building.


The existing atrium, characterized by heavy and assertive architectural features, was redesigned to be a light, airy space more befitting the term ‘Grand Atrium’ meant to inspire daily and event visitors.


This project provided a progressive, mission-driven upgrade to Franklin Park Conservatory, allowing it to deepen it’s connection to visitors through welcoming and memorable spaces.
