Built in 1913 and celebrated as the tallest building in the world at the time of completion, The Woolworth Building majestically rises above City Hall Park at the gateway to Tribeca. This National Historic Landmark has inspired countless painters, photographers, movie makers, dreamers, and everyday New Yorkers. Today under the architectural and aesthetic direction of Thierry W Despont, the top thirty floors of this celebrated structure are being reimagined into thirty-three prized condominium residences, crowned by a extraordinary five-story Pinnacle Penthouse.

Our approach to lighting in this project seeks to blend the extraordinary qualities of the original building, as well as the exquisite materials that Despont selected for the new interior spaces.
