Client: Bracco Diagnostics
Location: Princeton, NJ, United States
Completion date: 2013
In collaboration with KSS Architects, Skyline was asked to add life and light to the interior gallery space of Bracco Diagnostics – an advanced technology developer of medical imaging – while simultaneously expressing a corporate identity aesthetic visible on the exterior from the passing traffic below.

The glass panels’ clean and translucent lines open and illuminate the building, and the real life medical imaging displays Bracco’s work and progress in the scientific field. Together, KSS and Skyline have created beautiful branding which is highly vis
