Poulin + Morris (New York) announced new projects including a comprehensive environmental graphics and wayfinding sign program for all public and non-public areas of 7 Bryant Park, a new 474,000-square-foot mixed-use office tower in midtown Manhattan. The project includes main identification, lobby identification, tenant directory, tenant identification, service- and code-related signs, as well as interior identification standards for future commercial tenants.
The firm also developed a comprehensive environmental graphics and wayfinding sign program for a new 145,000-square-foot facility for the Abraham Joshua Heschel School on the Upper West Side. A vibrant color-coding system was created to easily identify the school’s eight floors, while a modular sign panel system displays all public information requirements including directional, office identification, classroom identification, and regulatory signs. Colorful, changeable sign panels were designed to display room numbers, room names, teachers’ names, and donor recognition in English and Hebrew.
A donor recognition program consisting of translucent cast-resin panels can be found throughout the building, displaying donor names layered with verses from the Shema, a Hebrew prayer. A large-scale donor recognition wall composed of curvilinear panels arranged in a thee-dimensional woven pattern, symbolizing community, honors multiple levels of donors.
A 585-acre urban oasis located in the heart of Brooklyn, Prospect Park has undergone an extensive $74 million, 26-acre restoration; Lakeside Center restores the southeast section of the park to its original Olmsted and Vaux landscape design. Poulin + Morris developed a comprehensive environmental graphics, donor recognition, and wayfinding sign program for the Lakeside Center project, ensuring easy navigation throughout the newly restored areas of the popular park.
