Richter Lighting Technologies GmbH was entrusted with producing building elements that embodied the aesthetic and functional requirements of 50 Hudson Yards.
The architectural elements incorporated were a harmonious blend of natural of natural wood themes in the west lobby, adorned with decorative elements (eyelids, coves, and rosettes), and a bronze finish extending outwards of the building.
The white luminous ceiling panels and the energy-efficient recessed led luminaires in the East lobby, helped enhance the overall ambiance of the building.
The Richter “90-10 Philosophy” is a unique approach to construction revolving around four main stages – understanding client needs and requirements, utilizing an extensive library of parts and expertise, conducting most (90%) of the development in-house, and delivering custom solutions that meet agreed requirements. This process, focused on maintaining clear quality, cost, and lead time, is designed to ensure a sustainable environment across the entire lifecycle of a project. It also ensures that the final product is delivered in a manner that simplifies the installation process for on-site professionals.
In conclusion, the 50 Hudson Yards is not just another skyscraper in New York City. It represents the future of office space, reflecting the changes in work trends and employee preferences.
