Seven Bryant Park occupies a privileged position at the southwest corner of Bryant Park, in midtown Manhattan. The building incorporates decorative façade lighting as a civic gesture to the park, and it is the rare midtown building where façade lighting is experienced up close by pedestrians at the ground plane and by occupants of the building. After completion of the base building as a speculative development, the design team was retained by the new building owner to fit out the lower half of the building as their New York headquarters. The project presented a rare opportunity to conceive all of the lighting from the ground plane up to the 14th floor in a midtown Manhattan office building.
