Completed in 2015, the project included lighting for all components of the building including offices, lobbies, food serveries and cafes, training facilities, wellness center, and conference rooms.

This innovative project, completed with CONTENT Architecture, created an airy, modern residence and art studio from a previous auto mechanic's shop. While budget was a concern, skillful lighting design was key in turning this 7,200 square feet of aging metal warehouses into open, pleasant, functional living and working spaces.

Lighting Bloopers

It's a hazard of the job--we can't go anywhere without analyzing the lighting. We've seen it all--the good, the bad, and the so-bad-it's-hilarious. So we've devised this column to share some of the funniest lighting mishaps we've come across.

As lighting designers we usually vote for an even spacing of fixtures. It keeps our light levels consistent, it makes the fixtures more visually pleasing, etc. But sometimes in construction there are obstacles that cannot be helped and the light layout must adjust.

Whoever was installing new light poles in this neighborhood did not see a homeowner's driveway as one such obstacle. 

If you come across a spectacular (or just embarrassing) lighting blooper, please send it to us at sarah@G2LD.com. We're always looking for a good laugh...
