DRD5S Matches Sendero Verde’s Innovative Concept

Location: New York, NY
Products: DRD5S, 4″ Surface Mount Housing
Architecture: Handel Architects
Landscape Architecture: AECOM
Developer: Jonathan Rose Companies

Located in East Harlem in New York City, Sendero Verde boasts 709 designated affordable apartment units as well as extensive community spaces, retail stores, outdoor gardens and a school. By providing a variety of opportunities and support services under one roof, the project creates an Community of Opportunity that can help break the cycle of poverty that disrupts so many people’s lives. Certified by both Passive House Institute and Enterprise Green Communities, Sendero Verde is the largest fully affordable Passive House building in the world, ensuring superior levels of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, occupant comfort, and resiliency.

The project was awarded through the City’s SustainNYC program, which seeks to create affordable housing for New Yorkers without compromising design quality. That philosophy of quality and design is reflected in the living spaces, which feature cost-saving amenities and appliances such as the affordable DRD5S Surface Mount.

Packed with technical breakthroughs, the ultra-thin DRD5S matches the elegance of a high-end recessed downlight at a fraction of the price. Extending just 0.6 inches below the ceiling plane, it’s designed to minimize its visual profile while maintaining fire and sound ratings required in multifamily structures — making it the perfect match for this one-of-kind affordable mixed-use project.

X Series: Performance in a Small Package

Our X Series line has been thoughtfully engineered to provide the minimal appearance of a 2” aperture, while still delivering the lighting performance of a 4” fixture. To give you a better idea of its light distribution and how you can use it for a variety of purposes, we put together conceptual spaces that we have modeled with X Series and X Series Cylinder.

Note: To best demonstrate the lighting’s effect, the spaces have minimal finishes, a neutral color palette, and no natural light. The fixture types are all 1000 lm, 3000K CCT. Some fixtures types are dimmed and noted as such in the description.
