This project involved the development and expression of a design concept that would be dramatic, contemporary, and that would reference the business itself, lighting.
Description, Intent and Project Objectives
The project involved the complete conceptual design development through to construction of a shelled commercial space.
Project Challenges/Innovations/Lessons Learned
The client wanted a mezzanine space. This meant dealing with building code issues. The client also wanted a very contemporary industrial look with no wood. The design solution was to leave structure exposed which developed into dramatic design features. The client wanted to use the existing concrete floor. The solution was to polish the existing floor. The staircase was designed to float in the space. Lighting played a large role . A variety of lighting features were included in the project. One could say that the entire design was a ‘play on light’.
