New York's new urban oasis: custom-designed ERCO outdoor luminaires for optimum plant growth and high visual comfort at ‘550 Madison Avenue Garden’
A green wonder thrives in one of New York’s most densely built-up corners. In Midtown Manhattan, the Norwegian-American architectural firm Snohetta transformed an open space of 2,000m2 into an artfully designed paradise. A partially covered landscape garden has been created on Madison Avenue between 55th and 56th streets consisting of over 300 shrubs, 15,000 flowers and 40 trees. ERCO Kona outdoor projectors in the green oasis, installed on the steel beams of the glass roof, provide sufficient light and brightness for visitors and plants.
