TOP: LOUNGE TREATMENT is similar to the motil of a sophisticated modern country house living-room. A tire-place that really burns, picture window and tlower bed give patrons a glowing sense at luxurianceusomething different and desirable; while the stone and cedar-sided walls and slate tlagstone tloor require but a minimum of upkeep. SIDE: Lobby interior is distinctly tunctional in design. The steel columns and struts which support the root and glass walls are lelt exposed. The pitched root trusses are inverted and resulting planes simply plastered. The almost tantastic light iixture is made at circline lluorescent tubes lett exposed. At the base 01 the glass exterior walls metal gutters are installed to catch condensation from the glass at which there is an abundance. These troughs are used in the summer as tlower boxes. The interesting wall decorations are themes suggested to the artist by the word "Richtield". In this lobby. the architect has produced a thing at beauty. an ideal transition room [or patrons both entering and leaving the theatre. BOTTOM: Another View at the lounge. This is no run-ot-the-milt waiting space. The prevailing resttul atmosphere at the room is enhanced by llowers actually growing in a permanent location. Handsome. comlortable chairs skilllully placed at desirable locations contribute considerably to the unusual decor.
