    • Spanning the lobby's entire main wall in a corporate headquarters, this black granite water wall’s aesthetic impact is comparable only to its incredible scale. At a width of 19 ft. and a height of 27 ft., the wall fills the viewer's visual extents while climbing or descending the glass-treaded staircase. Underwater lights at the base and recessed lights in the ceiling enhance the gently cascading waves of water. A remote pump and filtration system with ultraviolet light water treatment is utilized to provide a perfectly functioning water feature that will become the focal point of the lobby.
