Wildwood Schools in Los Angeles, California converted a 1940s-era 55,000 square foot warehouse into a learning center with a unique, creative atmosphere. The design features the original wooden posts, beams and truss roof of the building in an open, architecturally exposed environment. The project needed luminaires that were efficient, secure, and fit visually with the overall design.
This application photo series is from the Seattle Central Library (called in some news reports as one of the top 30 buildings in the world) located in Seattle WA. The 11-story library features a contemporary innovative design consisting of “diamond shaped” glass and steel exterior with an open, inviting interior focused on modern digital technology. It established a significant new benchmark for sustainable building programs across the country, and outperforms the Seattle energy code by 10%.

When a state office building in downtown Los Angeles started out as a canvas on which to create significant architectural design, and then utilized unique lighting to create dramatic visual effects, it’s no surprise when it becomes a national iconic landmark. Not only has the California Department of Transportation District 7 headquarters (CALTRANS) become the crown jewel of Los Angeles, but it has been a popular backdrop for countless movies, commercials and television shows. The design and construction of this striking 13-story structure was documented on the History Channel to reveal the challenges presented in the creation of a large building with unique design & style characteristics in a multi-function space.
