Atrium Light Testing

We were on site today with Ventresca Designs to work out the detailing for the Atrium light at GIPHY‘s new office in Manhattan.

Our design features a park-like axis lit by an artificial, 60ft x 12ft skylight / atrium. It will contain 120 of Ketra’s G2 linear fixtures programmed to mimic natural daylighting, synchronizing with the the body’s circadian rhythm. Read more about our project for GIPHY.
