152 Elizabeth Street


New York, New York

The lighting concept for this condominium designed by Tadao Ando and developed with Khurana & Sumaida, was completely integrated with interiors by Gabellini Sheppard to celebrate the building’s basic aesthetic of “quiet sanctuary” within NYC modern materials of architectural concrete, glass and steel.

Primary linear lighting elements throughout the public amenities and private units are hidden from view minimizing contrast and glare while allowing the only the  lighting effect rather than the light fixture itself to be seen and felt fulfilling Ando’s belief that “light is a living thing” that’s meant to breathe and in return “gives life”.
