As tends to be the case with historic institutions, this renovation posed numerous lighting challenges, all of which related to the ceiling.
Historic luminaires in the main entrance were to be retained, and existing light levels did not meet building code requirements. Refurbishing the luminaires and relamping with efficient light sources increased light levels, improved the aesthetic of the light fixtures and enhanced the appearance of the space.

A vaulted ceiling in the Great Hall was calling out to be showcased. Skylights at the apex created the potential for a mirror effect-where the light source is visible in the glass. The solution: a sleek direct-indirect luminaire with asymmetric uplight, positioned to highlight the ceiling and cut off at the skylight.
