Pendry Manhattan West

Drawing from the sophisticated glamour and understated elegance of the Pendry Manhattan West design, L’Observatoire International’s lighting is thoughtfully attuned to adapt to the day’s rhythm. Controlled contrast establishes ambiance and hierarchy, creating spaces that cultivate uniquely interactive experiences between guests. The lighting concept is based on having various and different layers. Working closely with Gachot Studios with bespoke decorative fixtures and with Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill on various integrated lighting elements throughout, the lighting design is crafted to enhance sumptuous materials and finishes. Glowing, diffuse light sources for intimate warmth are supplemented with precise detailing for a level of functionality that provides articulated comfort and intuitive wayfinding.


L’Observatoire International scope consists of the exterior façade, all guestrooms, guestroom corridors, elevator lobbies, Level 1 (bar, garden room, lobby, reception), Level 4 (gym and meeting room), and level 5 (event space, prefunction, boardroom, and meeting space) and rooftop bar/lounge.
