Our lighting design approach began by identifying a signature Garment District light fixture to enhance the pedestrian experience at night. A distinct tapestry of light, materials, and elements creates focal points with a curated emphasis. The lighting develops immersive environments that consider multiple viewing angles, light distributions, and maintenance approaches to create distinctive public space lighting that respects and responds to the history of the neighborhood. “Moonlighting” of the street is achieved through mounting light fixtures to the roofs and balconies of the buildings along the avenue. “Filters of Time” are our signature passive lighting armatures that filter the moonlighting, augmenting the pedestrian level experience. The lighting design activates the public plazas at night, creating an environment that fosters a 24/7 use of this public space.
