We’re really impressed with the thermally modified ash pavers we just installed at the Durst Organization’s 4 Times Square and 1133 Avenue of the Americas.
All lighting design projects begin with a dark palette. We start by integrating safety lighting for basic elements, illuminating pathways, stairwells and entrances … but we don’t stop there. Like magicians, we begin to pull out design features from the shadows. Highlighting planters, pergolas and architectural structures, showcasing feature elements and objects of beauty, and creating new shapes and patterns through the interplay of light and dark. Uplighting, silhouetting and accenting are just a few techniques we use to recreate the outdoors as a nighttime environment. By purposefully incorporating exterior lighting into your design you will appreciate your space in a whole new light.
Serving as a transition between interior space and outdoor landscape, a freestanding pergola serves as a focal point, centering the space and drawing attention to the best features the garden has to offer. When properly implemented, a pergola performs double duty, extending the living space while defining a distinct outdoor space.
An important first step for both residential and commercial projects, pavers express individual style while also providing a major design feature that sets the stage for the overall look and feel of the space. An extremely customizable landscaping surface, pavers are used to upgrade patios, entryways, plazas, roof decks that can help integrate a design or style that will not only look great, but longevity of pavers is a renowned trait, and requires only minimal maintenance season after season.
