Hallets Point Queens
Hallets Point, a new mixed-purpose, multi-phase neighborhood project on the New York City waterfront, created by Dattner Architects, aims to transform a former industrial site into a new and thriving neighborhood.
The master plan calls for luxury and affordable residential, public, retail, and educational spaces. 10 Hallets Point, the completed first phase, includes a LEED Gold-certified two-tower, twenty-two-story residential building.
Of Hallets Point’s many amenities is a large, welcoming lobby that includes a reception desk with 24-hour attendants and several public spaces. The reception area is crafted using sustainably sourced wood and polished concrete floors and features custom light installations.
The ceiling design had precise requirements that required custom solutions. Fabbian’s Multispot Tooby was selected as it met both design aesthetics and the customizable system could work within the design parameters.
A recessed 2′ by 16′ custom canopy with suspended 48 Fabbian Multispot Tooby pendants of varying heights is located over the reception desk to welcome guests and residents. The custom canopy mounts flush to the ceiling and features no visible connectors or below-celing hardware creating a smooth seamless installation.
For the surrounding public areas, (3) similar canopies were created. Each measured 1′ x 5′ and contained 11 pendants of varying heights.
In the elevator lobby, matching Multispot Tooby pendants were provided with custom cut 4″ and 6″ glass lengths. The custom fixtures were installed flush to the ceiling using trimless connectors for a seamless appearance.
The Multispot Custom Tooby configurable system made the design vision of creating a warm and welcoming lobby for residents and their guests a reality while keeping lead times and costs down with mainly production components.
