30 Rockefeller Plaza: 65th Floor, Rainbow Room, SixtyFive in New York City by Gabellini Sheppard Associates and Montroy Andersen DeMarco

Rekindling the 65th-floor restaurant and bar’s radiant Art Deco spirit, Gabellini Sheppard Associates installed crystal window veils, restored a chandelier and central dome, and added a faceted ceiling composed of glass-reinforced gypsum panels—the project received Interior Design’s prestigious Best of Year award in 2015 for Fine Dining.
