HESS CORPORATION, New York, NY – LEED CERTIFIED (2008)
Specifier: TPG Architecture / New York , NY
Installer: NEWMAT USA LTD. / West Babylon, NY
Project: As part of the recent renovation of the New York Headquarters of the Hess Corporation, TPG Architecture called on Newmat to achieve two of their design elements.
The first consisted of a large 2,500 square foot, 3-dimensional S-curved translucent ceiling backlit with fluorescent fixtures for the dining area.
The second consisted of 124 custom fabricated panels and grid for various conference rooms and elevator lobbies.
For the S-curved ceiling, Newmat fabricated double-ghost round tube dividers curved in the required shape, powder-coated white for better light reflection, and installed 7 feet on center; a single layer of NEW/LIGHT T0B white translucent was stretched from divider to divider. For the custom fabricated panels, Newmat provided double-layer custom fabricated drop-in panels with a custom grid with bronze finish.
TPG took full advantage of Newmat’s flexibility, aesthetics, and lighting performance to once again design a space with a striking image.
