discovery green brown promenade
parks and landscape
Originally illuminated only by pathway bollards, Discovery Green's Board of Directors wished to highlight the Brown Promenade's impressive alley of mature oak trees, and entrusted G2LD to design the lighting for the over-600-foot esplanade. With maintenance and existing ground cover being two concerns for the lighting, our team designed a custom one-foot-tall bollard to be cast on site that would house each LED ingrade fixture. This slight elevation allows the fixture to be level with the existing landscape without being an eyesore or glare source to passing pedestrians. The result is both energy efficient and maintenance friendly while dramatically illuminating one of Houston's most iconic promenades.
