Skyscraper interiors

This thread is dedicated to discussing interior design of skyscrapers. Whether residential or commercial, all skyscrapers require specific interior solutions and we can talk about it here.

That is fantastic, although climate and ventilation control must be very complex. I am also not sure how does sound proofing work there, or maybe workers in HK are just not loud (although in early 1980s they must have still used typewriters?).

Can't find the interios of the Federation Tower lobby but here is the penthouse http://www.salon.ru/article.plx?id=11692

I wonder what is the current trend in office space division in towers. There is a central core and around it, is it nowadays usual to have one big open space all the way around the core, or to divide it in a number of smaller offices?

Perhaps in Detroit you can find some of those but even there I've seen they are reopening downtown tower hotels etc.

Wow thx christos beautiful view, although a little weird inside. There are many sharp angles, and the maid has no window ... is not that well. I liked the lobby
