L'Observatoire International has created an inviting scheme that celebrates sophisticated glamour for a hotel in New York City.

Pendry Manhattan West is Pendry's first New York City hotel, located in Midtown West. The lighting scheme highlights the beautiful and intimate feel of the hotel, nestled within the large buildings of nearby Hudson Yards.

Exterior lighting includes discreetly placed fixtures for soft, understated light concentrated at the entry, drawing the eye inside.

Inside, layers of lighting sitting within spaces and objects throughout the hotel were created by working with the interior designer Gachot Studios on bespoke decorative solutions. Highlights include integrated linear light detailed into wall panelling and millwork, richly glowing decorative light fixtures and shielded point sources set within the architecture.

The use of contrast establishes ambiance and hierarchy, creating spaces that cultivate uniquely interactive experiences between guests.

This project has been longlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
