Imperial Market

Imperial Market, Sugarland, Texas
Architect: HOK

G2LD is proud to be a part of the design team for Imperial Market, an 850,000 sq. ft. mixed use development situated on 26 acres in Sugarland, Texas. The lifestyle center, which features retail, office, restaurants, hotel, residential, and museums, sits at the center of the 720 acre master planned community, Imperial. The site is home to the original Imperial Sugar, established in 1843 and is now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
Working with project architect HOK, lighting for the project aims to be both sensitive to the historic, industrial feel of the site, while still providing modern, eye-catching elements such as 130' silos washed in color-changing light, that provide a sense of place and make for a vibrant nighttime destination.

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, the ugly, and the so-bad-it’s-hilarious. So we’ve devised this column to share some of the funniest lighting mishaps.

We think we know how this conversation went...

"Just paint the whole building grey."

"The whole building?"

"Yes, the whole building."

"Got it."
A few days pass. The design team gets a complaint call--seems the building perimeter is much darker than expected.

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...
