Governors Island

Governors Island

Partnering with the Trust for Governors Island and design Pentagram and West 8, DCL was included primarily for our expertise in providing custom-fabricated solutions for projects of similar size and complexity.

The environmental graphics, wayfinding, and transparent signage serve as key viewpoints to mark docks and the surrounding New York harbor area. A prominent work for the built environment, the historical gantry was fitted with 9-foot tall letters that are visible from Manhattan.

Parts of the project included two welcome walls - one spanning 24' x 62', street signs, historical maps, district markers - all built to withstand the island climate while reflecting the elegance of the new landscape.
