When the law offices of Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP moved into the block-long, ten-story office building at 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue, they realized that the space suffered from a lack of natural light at the interior of the building. Carpenter Norris Consulting was the lighting designer and developed an innovative light pipe to direct sunlight down through the core of the building. SGH provided building enclosure and structural engineering services to assist with the design and facilitate the installation of the light pipe.
